Crewe NPU officers acting on information from the public recovered a number of cannabis plants from woodland in Oakhanger on the afternoon of Friday 24 August 2012.
PC Andy Kent and PC Warren Davison received information from a member of the public that cannabis was being cultivated in woodland in the Oakhanger and Alsager area.
PC Andy Kent said: "After fighting through bracken up to six foot high and searching the woodland we found 10 cannabis plants that had been purposefully planted and were quite obviously being tendered to by someone.
"They are well off the beaten track and had grown quite successfully. Someone has spent a considerable amount of their time in these woods and may have been spotted attending regularly to the site which is off Taylors Lane."
PC Kent added: "Cannabis is a Class B drug and any person found cultivating it can face up to 14 years imprisonment at Crown Court.
"Crewe NPU are committed to tackling the increase in domestic cannabis growers and also larger scale operations. I would urge anyone with information about the person responsible for this cannabis crop to either contact PC Kent or PC Davidson at Crewe Police station on 101."
Information can also be given anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
