A man has been arrested in connection with being concerned in the cultivation of a controlled Class B drug following the execution of a drugs warrant in Corby.
Officers from the Corby Neighbourhood Policing Team executed the warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act after concerns were raised about the address through the Force’s online reporting system.
As a direct result of the anonymous report, officers visited the house in Wharfedale Road, Corby, which led to the action last Friday (November 12) and the discovery of 155 mature cannabis plants.
A 33-year-old Corby man has been arrested in connection with being concerned in the cultivation of a controlled Class B drug. He has since been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
PC Sean Taylor, of the Corby Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Anything which causes the local community a concern, causes us a concern too, and tackling and preventing the supply of drugs is one of our local policing priorities.
“If anyone has concerns in relation to any form of suspected illegal activity, please report it to us on 101, online at www.northants.police.uk/ro or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
