Now the street value has increased to 700 thousand pounds.
Officers raided the house and remained there all day, removing equipment and around 500 plants.
A 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of producing cannabis and taken into police custody.
A man and woman have been injured after a fight broke out in a Guisborough pub.
It happened at around midnight on Sunday in the Kings Head pub and then continued outside.
The victims were punched and pushed to the ground from behind.
They were both taken to hospital where the man needed stitches for a head wound and the woman was treated for a broken jaw.
Police are asking anyone with information to call them on non-emergency number 101.
And the council’s 'Love it’ campaign is celebrating its first birthday.
The scheme tries to encourage residents to do little things to make a big difference to the local environment.
And as a way of saying thank you the council has shone the spotlight on some of the best projects.
The residents of Charlotte Street and Charles Street in Redcar were praised for embracing their new back alley gates and transforming it into a community space.
And looking to the future, the foundation is planning to offer grants of up to five thousand pounds to develop local projects.
