A man has been arrested following a drugs warrant at a property in Stone.
In the early afternoon on Tuesday 1 June officers executed a drugs warrant on a property on Westover Drive.
A large amount of cannabis was found within the property as well as expensive equipment used for the cultivation of cannabis housed in the roof of the property.
A 31-year-old man from Stone later returned to the property and was arrested on suspicion of producing a controlled drug of Class B – cannabis, after messages relating to the supply of cannabis were found on his mobile phone. He has since been released under investigation.
DC Danielle Brannan of Staffordshire Police’s Disruption Team South said: “There was a very expensive high-tech grow in the loft. There was also cannabis in jars and tubs found throughout the premises.
“We will always look to shut down drugs operations which blight the lives of the communities we serve and will continue to pro-actively seek to bring the perpetrators to justice.”
