Suspects in court over £1million cannabis factory at former nightclub

Two men charged after a £1 million cannabis factory was found inside a former Coventry nightclub have appeared in court.

The massive set-up was discovered by the National Crime Agency (NCA) at a three-storey former nightclub in Trinity Street, in Coventry city centre, during an operation on October 15.

Officers found around 1,000 plants, worth an estimated £1 million, and it was described at the time as “one of the largest grows ever uncovered by the NCA”.

Three people were arrested and charged with production of a class B drug following the raid.

Albanian national Andi Cani, 24, and Vietnamese national Cao Van Vu, 31, appeared at Warwick Crown Court on Thursday (November 12) and both pleaded not guilty.

They were remanded into custody ahead of a trial on May 17, 2021.
