More cannabis found in sec­ond street raid

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

AN­OTHER mas­sive haul of cannabis has been found on the same ter­raced street po­lice raided less than a month ago.

De­tec­tives dis­cov­ered a huge haul in Gil­bert Cres­cent, Llanelli, in July af­ter a dozy drug dealer left the front door wide open. Now po­lice have been back in the small street for a sec­ond time - find­ing al­most 200 cannabis plants this time.

One the rooms, be­lieved to be the liv­ing room, was full of cannabis plants and of­fi­cers also found so­phis­ti­cated equip­ment - such as lamps, ven­ti­la­tion fans and in­su­la­tion.

Dyfed-Powys Po­lice con­firmed a war­rant was ex­e­cuted at the house on Au­gust 1. “We are urg­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic to con­tinue to come for­ward with in­for­ma­tion,” a spokesman added.

“While no in­ves­ti­ga­tions have been made to this lat­est dis­cov­ery, in­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing.

The street value of the cannabis has not been dis­closed, but of­fi­cers con­firmed that 197 plants have been seized. In the mean­time, po­lice said the next pub­lic meet­ing in the Elli/ Lleidi ward will be tak­ing place at 6.30pm on Thurs­day, Au­gust 8, at the Llanelli Deaf So­ci­ety. A spokesman added: “This surgery is an op­por­tu­nity for the deaf com­mu­nity to ap­proach their lo­cal of­fi­cer with any con­cerns.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the drugs raid can con­tact the po­lice on 101 or Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
