Police instigate an impressive Southend drug haul

Cannabis farm seized by police last week.

Officers from Southend Local Policing Team recently seized over 180 cannabis plants.

On Sunday, May 6, acting on information from the public, officers executed a warrant at an address in Southend.

The Force Support Unit forced entry into the property, where they found a number of illegal items.

The team searched the address and seized more than 180 cannabis plants. They also found a large bag which contained what is believed to be cannabis and an offensive weapon.

No one was arrested. Pc David Grant, who organised the warrant, said: “This is a really good result today with enquiries ongoing.

“This is just one example of the work we do to tackle drug-related crime. We will always act on information given to us and urge members of the public that have any information about drug-related offences in their area to call us.”

Anyone with concerns about drug dealing or suspected cannabis cultivations is asked to contact police on 101. Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
