TWO ARRESTED AFTER £7,000 CANNABIS HAUL SEIZED

TWO people were questioned by police following the discovery of a cannabis factory. 

Officers carried out a proactive search at a house on the Wattlebridge Road in Newtownbutler yesterday, Monday 23 April.

Inspector Jonathan Gordon said: “A substantial cannabis factory containing plants worth more than £7,000 was found during the operation under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

“Two people, a 45 year old woman and a 34 year old man were detained at the property on suspicion of a range of drugs offences including cultivating cannabis and being concerned in the supply of a controlled drug.

The pair were subsequently released on bail pending further enquiries.

“The plants have been seized by police along with cultivation equipment and other drugs paraphernalia.

“I would continue to encourage members of the public with concerns or suspicions around drug cultivation or drug dealing to make local police aware.

“By working together we can strike a blow against those who would seek to bring drugs into our communities.”
