FIVE HUNDRED cannabis plants were found when a Sunderland home was raided.
Police made the discovery when they searched the house in Gray Road, Hendon, on Friday at 4.20pm.
A value has not been put on how much the haul is worth, as the plants were at varying stages of growth.
Power to the address was disconnected by engineers and the house secured.
Inquiries are ongoing to trace those responsible for the drug farm.
