A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall police said: "They are getting in to the disused factory and running around in the dark.
"There are obvious dangers with pipes and walls crumbling.
"But the main concern is that there is possibly asbestos in the building.
"They could end up falling and no-one would know they are in there," he added.
It's believed the owner of the factory will be contacted today by police about securing the premises.
