Inside the address, two men, aged 36 and 31, were attending to the plants and were subsequently apprehended on suspicion of cannabis plant production and electricity theft.
Confirmation of an electricity bypass in each property prompted the intervention of Electricity North West to ensure the safety of the premises.
A total of over 400 plants, estimated to be worth £500,000 on the streets, were confiscated.
Inspector Meena Yasin, leading GMP’s Rochdale North Neighbourhood team, stated, “These warrants have led to a significant seizure of cannabis, demonstrating our commitment to eradicating drugs from our streets.
“This is not an isolated incident – there’s a network of organised criminal activity behind these recent seizures.
“Our ability to execute such warrants relies heavily on community cooperation. I urge anyone with concerns or information about drug trade in their vicinity to come forward and engage with the police directly or anonymously contact Crimestoppers.
“Community-provided information is pivotal in these operations. Please don’t hesitate to inform us if you have any apprehensions about drug-related activities in your local area.”
