A MAN who tried to run away from police after being found at a cannabis farm has been arrested.

The man was found at an address in the BD10 area, and apprehended after a short foot chase with officers.

Inside the property, a large cannabis farm was discovered by officers from Bradford East Neighbourhood Policing Team.

The bust came after a tip-off from a local member of the public.

The man is in custody, and enquiries are continuing. The grow was discovered at around 6.15pm.

Cannabis is a Class B drug, and production of plants can lead to up to 14 years in prison, an unlimited fine or both.
