Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Two arrests as part of cannabis conspiracy investigation

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to produce cannabis following three warrants in Bristol yesterday (Thursday, 31 October).

Officers from the South West Regional Organised Crime Unit (SW ROCU) carried out warrants on Lichfield Road in St Annes, Glen Park in Eastville and Linden House on Kingswood High Street at midday. 

The two men, age 36 and 45, ran off from the Lichfield Road house, but were caught and arrested nearby.

Following searches of the premises, £20k cash was seized from Lichfield Road and four kilos of harvested cannabis from a vehicle near the Glen Park address.

Yesterday’s operation is part of a larger investigation that saw a multi-level cannabis factory in Birkenhead, Merseyside, dismantled on October 10.
