Electricians had to cut off the power supply after police discovered a cannabis farm in a terraced house in Oldham.
Some 121, 5ft tall plants were seized from the house on Hawksley Street in Hollinwood on Saturday.
Police said four rooms in the property were being used to grow the crop.
And the electrics had been ‘bypassed so badly’ electricians had to be called in to dig up the pavement outside to cut off the supply.
A post on the GMP Failsworth & Hollinwood Facebook page said; “This afternoon the Failsworth/Hollinwood Team executed a drugs warrant at 61 Hawksley Street, Oldham.
