Man arrested as police find drug worth £300k
THIS is just part of a haul of 360 cannabis plants found by police at two addresses in Cheltenham.
Officers from the Force Crime Operations team believe the combined street value of the drugs found in this latest operation could be £300,000.
The specialist officers, who focus in serious and organised crime, found 208 plants in one location and 152 in another property on Monday.
A 44-year-old man from Cheltenham was arrested on suspicion of the production of class B drugs and remains in custody at this time. DC Craig Openshaw said: “We have disrupted what we suspect is an organised crime group. “We would ask you to call Crimestoppers should you suspect that something similar is taking part where you live.
“You can submit information anonymously by calling 0800 555 111. “This is the fifth cannabis grow that we have discovered in the last week, resulting in over £750,000 of cannabis being taken off the streets.”
