Man arrested after cannabis seized
A man has been arrested after police uncovered a cannabis
cultivation at a house in Maidstone.
On February 16, officers were called to an address on London
Road and uncovered 24 cannabis plants, in various stages of
cultivation. Detectives seized the plants, as well as lighting and
other equipment designed to help the plants grow. Police also
seized a large quantity of herbal cannabis.
A 23-year-old man from Maidstone was arrested on suspicion of
cultivating cannabis and supplying a controlled drug. He was also
arrested on suspicion of possessing counterfeit currency.
Det Con Claire Davey from Kent Police said: “Seizing drugs stops
people profiting from selling illegal substances, and also helps
reduce other associated crime, such as theft and anti-social
behaviour. In this instance, the local neighbourhood officers were
in the area on another matter, but caught the scent of the cannabis
and further investigation led to us making an arrest. I would
encourage anyone who suspects drug use or dealing in their area to
contact us so we can investigate.”
