LONDON, April 17 (UPI) -- British investigators say they found nearly 1,000 marijuana plants valued at $1.6 million in a house and swimming pool in Lancashire.

The Daily Mail said the rented house in Broughton, near Preston, contained a sophisticated factory operation that included hydroponic lights, heaters and fans.

Police are searching for suspects.

"We have had experienced search-trained officers working at the scene and they have never seen a drugs cultivation operation like this in more than 20 years of conducting police searches," Chief Inspector James Lee told the London newspaper.
