I thought it had been all quiet on the Vietnamese cannabis factories front.

UK Border Agency officers have charged 11 Vietnamese men after a series of drugs raids in north Liverpool.
Teams from Merseyside Police and the Border Agency seized up to £1m of cannabis and £14,000 in cash during Operation Juliana – the culmination of 12 months of detective work. Officers arrested 13 suspected Vietnamese drug farmers including the suspected gang leader.

Six cannabis factories were raided in Kensington, West Derby Tuebrook, Kirkdale and Seaforth. In Gilroy Street, Kensington, armoured and helmeted officers smashed their way into three properties using battering rams.

In one house eight large bags of compost were found by the front door. Officers poured up the apple and pears (stairs) and arrested a man hidden in the loft. Neighbours came out of their homes still wearing their jim jams and saucepan lids (kids) looked on as the raid was carried out.
Properties were also raided in nearby Molyneux Road and Sheil Road, West Derby Road, Tuebrook and Ruskin Street and Smeaton Street, in Kirkdale, and Cecil Road, Seaforth.

Last night, 11 of the men were charged with conspiracy to supply Class B drugs. Seven of those men were charged with gaining unlawful entry to the UK. Two of them were charged with facilitating unlawful entry into the UK. Now all we’ve got to do is deport them when they come out of prison.
