MORE than 100 cannabis plants seized have been seized from two properties in Leamington.

Warwickshire Police responded to reports of windows being smashed at a house in Wentworth Road on Friday (September 25).

They entered the property to check nobody was injured and discovered 39 plants with more cannabis harvested and ready to go.

On Sunday, a warrant was executed at a house in St David’s Close. The warrant was issued after concern was raised about suspicious activity at the property. Officers seized 73 plants.

The seizures come after a drive to tackle drug dealing and county lines crime in Warwickshire over recent weeks which led to 50 arrests.

Sgt Trent McMurray said: “The drug dealing business in Leamington has certainly taken a big hit over the last few weeks and we will continue to make it as hostile and costly as possible to deal in the town.

“I hope local people can see that we do act on the information they provide. Please continue to provide information and we will continue to act. All intelligence helps us to get a picture of issues in the local area and target those responsible.”

Anyone with information about drug dealing is asked to call 101 and speak to police or call 0800 555 111 to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.
