Police found around 40 cannabis plants being grown in a Harold Hill home during a drugs bust on Saturday after they received a tip-off.
Officers from the Gooshays Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) searched the Fairford Way home after receiving intelligence that the Class B drug was being cultivated there.
During the raid they found approximately 40 plants being grown inside the garden shed and garage.
The police said they seized the plants along with an electricity meter, which had been illegally bypassed to prevent it giving a true reading.
A 37-year-old woman was arrested at the address on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and abstracting electricity.
