TWO tubs of cannabis bush were amongst items seized during a drugs raid in Morecambe.

Police executed a drugs warrant at an address on Rosebery Avenue at around 3.30pm on Tuesday. They seized an industrial press and various items of drugs preparation paraphernalia from the basement of the address, along with two tile adhesive tubs full of cannabis bush.

A 21-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possessing cannabis and cocaine with intent to supply and a 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of cocaine. Both have been released on bail pending further inquiries.

Sgt Dylan Hrynkow, Morecambe police, said: “The raid was carried out as part of an ongoing operation in the town to crack down on crime.

“We know that drug addictions can lead to other crimes being committed in order to fund a habit and so we are committed to tackling those who deal drugs in our communities.

“We rely on residents to provide us with information about those who they believe are selling drugs and would encourage people to come forward with their suspicions and concerns.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. In an emergency always dial 999.
