Operation Viper Intelligence Request

The production and distribution of cannabis is illegal and we offer a zero tolerance to this type of serious and organised crime.

As a reminder, here are some of the possible signs you might see should someone be cultivating cannabis:

Sometimes, properties are rented accommodation, and when tenants move in, they'll bring a lot of equipment with them. This could include ventilation equipment, lighting equipment, grow bags and soil.

Absence from the property, or even lots of comings and goings.

A distinctive sickly-sweet smell.

Covered up windows.

Condensation on windows.

Tackling drug and gang-related offending is a priority for Northamptonshire Police, and those who seek to profit from such illegal activity will be relentlessly pursued.

This type of crime has a huge impact on our communities and vulnerable people and we urge the local community to help us to make your neighbourhood safer by providing information to us.

Operation viper is the force campaign to tackle serious organised crime and we need information from the public to help us build on our intelligence.

How to report?

999 for when there is a crime in progress or life is at risk

101 for non emergencies

Provide us with intelligence online - https://www.northants.police.uk/contact/cubp/northants/tell-us-about-something-youve-seen-or-heard

Kindest Regards
