FOUR men have been charged in connection with a drugs factory discovered in Southampton.

Police executed a warrant in connection with the production and supply of cannabis at a warehouse in Pitt Road on January 11.

Now, four men have been named and all charged with producing cannabis and using electricity without authority.

They are Rexhino Koci, 25, Agron Elezaj, 27, and Damiano Saraqi, 29, all of no fixed address, and Amarildo Sulaj, 22, of Stanhope Road, Doncaster.

All were remanded in custody to appear at Southampton Magistrates’ Court this morning (January 13).

Inside the warehouse were several rooms across two floors filled with hundreds of cannabis plants at various stages of growth, as well as an extensive ventilation and lighting system.

A living area and bathroom were also found in a squalid condition.

A dog was also discovered at the premises and was taken away by officers.
