Officers have uncovered a cannabis factory worth in the region of £300,000 in Wednesbury.
Cops raided a house on Kent Road, just before 7am on Thursday, where they found the illicit crops growing in all three bedrooms and a downstairs room.
A 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drugs cultivation. He has been since sent back to prison on other offences.
Cannabis Team tweeted: “Good result today working closely with WednesburyWMP. A well lead team. 3 in custody for produce class B. Another hit on organised crime funds.”
Cannabis factories are being discovered on a daily basis across the region, sometimes several times in a day.

Suspicions were first raised after an electricity engineer reported a strong smell of cannabis and after fuses were damaged following a unusual power surge at a substation near Lindon Road.
The Cannabis Team were led to the old factory unit where they found the bumper haul – said to be the largest this year.
