Two drugs arrests
by Angela Cole
Two people have been arrested after police carried out
a drugs warrant in Maidstone.
The neighbourhood policing team executed the warrant in Bell
Meadow, Maidstone, on Friday, seizing around 15 plants and
another 30 smaller plants that were in the early stages of
cultivation. Cultivating equipment including lighting, ventilation
and irrigation equipment was also seized.
A 40 year-old man and a 35 year-old woman, both from Maidstone,
were arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis. They were
released on police bail until 14 December, pending further
Inspector Jerry Prodger from Kent Police said: “This warrant
follows on from two successful warrants in Maidstone earlier in the
month, and is another example of us identifying people we suspect
of being involved with controlled drugs and taking action.
"Enforcement such as this will continue and if members of the
public have information about drug use or supply I would encourage
them to contact us so we can take action.”
