A man has been charged after a cannabis factory was discovered at a house in an Ipswich street.

Daci was arrested yesterday after police were called by a member of the public at around 4.25am yesterday.

Around 60 plants were found following a search of the property.

Daci, who is understood to be an Albanian-national, was subsequently arrested taken to the police investigation centre at Suffolk Constabulary’s Martlesham Headquarters.
