Man arrested following discovery of suspected cannabis farm in Leamington

POLICE swooped on a Leamington property following reports of a suspected cannabis farm.

Officers stormed a property on Court Street on Saturday, and seized a large number of cannabis plants and electrical equipment.

One man was arrested and has since been released under investigation.

Police also came across two men who are being supported as suspected victims of modern day slavery.

They are being safeguarded by police and specialist organisations while inquiries are ongoing.

Leamington’s Safer Neighbourhood Team has been running Operation Switch throughout the summer to tackle drug dealing in and around the town. Officers are urging anyone with concerns about the supply and use of illegal drugs in their community to report it.
