Two men have been charged after police raids uncovered two cannabis factories in Norwich.

In February officers raided a unit at Hellesdon Park Industrial Estate in Allston Road and found 60 plants with an estimated street value of around £30,000 were seized from the unit along with cultivating equipment.

Enquiries led officers to search a second industrial unit at the Bowthorpe Employment Area in Morgan Way the next day where officers seized another 20 cannabis plants and cultivating equipment.

Two men arrested in connection with the incident have since been charged.

Gary Kirk, 32 and of Duckett Close, Norwich and Jamie Knott, 38, of Devon Avenue, Norwich, have both been charged with producing a Class B drug between November 2012 and February 2013. Kirk also faces a charge of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug.

Both men have been released on bail to appear at Norwich Magistrates Court on Friday 9 August.
