Gangs Steal LED Headlights to Grow Weed

Luxury vehicles are being targeted by criminal gangs in the UK who steal the LED headlights from the vehicles for use in cannabis factories, according to UK based newspaper The Telegraph. 

Police are launching an investigation after a string of thefts of headlights from vehicles which are sold to drug dealers grow cannabis. Land Rovers and Range Rover models have become the most popular target among the gangs, as experienced thieves can remove the LED headlights in less than 60 seconds.

Although other areas of the vehicle are stolen as well and sold as parts, Police believe that LED headlights are sold to drug dealers to grow illegal plants since LED lights can make plants grow faster.

Around 14 people have been arrested so far in connection to the thefts, with one being charged and the other 13 released on bail. Police urge owners of luxury vehicles to be extra cautious and have even launched an operation to teach car owners how to protect against theft.
