Detective Constable Sarah Gregg, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: ‘Many neighbours were disturbed by the commotion and saw this frightening incident unfold which was unacceptable to the community in Forest Fields.
‘Following the report we responded quickly to secure arrests and undertook an extensive and meticulous investigation involving numerous police teams all working closely together.

‘This relentless hard work and excellent teamwork led to the ten defendants putting in early pleas and we now await their sentencing.
‘I would also like to thank the public for their help with our enquiries as the investigation progressed which has helped us bring these violent offenders to justice.’
Detective Superintendent Mike Allen added: ‘Cannabis grows are often used to fund serious organised crime and drive the criminal exploitation of vulnerable adults and children of varying ages.
‘Drugs production and dealing is never a low-risk venture. Weapon-enabled violence will always exist around drugs markets as different operators seek to defend, enforce or steal from others.

‘Anyone partaking in such illegal activity risks not only the police knocking at their door, a journey to custody, prison time and a criminal record, but they also risk drug dealing competitors using extreme violence to gain entry to their home and being exposed to the possibility of serious injury.
‘Occasionally offenders looking to steal cannabis will target the wrong house.
‘We never want that to happen, so if you have suspicions about the production of drugs in your community please let us know by calling Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 as you don’t want that house criminals accidently target to be yours.
‘It is for this reason, as a force, we will never tire of seizing cannabis grow sites within neighbourhoods across Nottinghamshire and locking up those responsible.’
