Argus SC Thermal Imaging Camera Helps Manchester Police
Cannabis farmers feel the heat
The latest in thermal imaging technology has led to police in Sale uncovering seven cannabis farms in the past six months. The equipment, which records this type of criminal activity using heat detection, is the first of its kind to be used in Trafford and has so far detected more than £200,000 worth of plants.
Last week police identified a farm containing 240 plants worth about £30,00 on Hampton Road. The equipment used to grow the plants was valued at approximately £10,000.
