Premier League player’s property turned into cannabis farm 

A Premier League footballer’s property was taken over by a gang and turned into a cannabis farm with hundreds of plants.

According to a report in The Sun, the property owned by the unnamed player was seized by a criminal gang. The tenant was forced out and the house was turned into a cannabis factory. 

The property is situated in the northwest of England; and while it is owned by the footballer, it had been rented out. 

Despite this, the player was questioned when police raided the house. He has since proved his innocence to authorities and his tenant, too, was released without any charges. 

“This player owns the house in the north west as part of a buy-to-let empire,” a source told The Sun

“Another family member manages the properties but they couldn’t believe it when cops found a large-scale cannabis farm.

“The plants were taken away and destroyed and the player had to show paperwork to prove that while he was the owner of the property, he had someone else living in it.”

Production and possession of cannabis with an attempt to supply is illegal in the UK and can result in a prison sentence of up to 14 years.
