A cannabis plantation was discovered in scrubland close to Peak Forest in Sundon Pits this morning.
Beds Police officers found the plants following intelligence about drugs gathered from the local community.
There were three separate areas at the location with around 35 cannabis plants being grown.
The plants, which were at different stages of maturity, have been recovered and will be destroyed.
Sergeant Andy Rivers of the Local Policing Team, said: “Bedfordshire Police is committed to the fight against drugs and will do all that we can to prosecute those involved in producing and selling them across the county.
“Thanks to information from people in the area we were able to recover and destroy this crop of cannabis but I would urge anyone who has any information about this discovery, or any other drug related offences, to come forward.”
