CANNABIS plants with a potential street value of up to £11,000 were seized from a house in Cheltenham on Sunday (January 5).

Officers from the Cheltenham Enforcement Team arrested a 37-year-old man on suspicion of drugs cultivation in connection with the find at Townsend Street in the town.

He was bailed to attend Cheltenham police station on May 12, pending further inquiries.

In total 24 cannabis plants, 12 described as in the early stages of growth and 12 in the late stages of growth, were confiscated, along with hydroponics equipment and other related items.

PC Craig Openshaw said: "I hope this reassures the community that we will take action where activity like this is suspected.

"Drugs can cause real harm in our neighbourhoods and can often affect the quality of life for residents.

"Anyone with information about drugs can call 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
