Police seize cannabis and cash

CANNABIS with an estimated street value of £500 and hundreds of pounds in cash was seized by police in Lancaster yesterday (September 7).

A man was searched on Westbourne Road and cannabis – some of which police suspect had been prepared ready for dealing – and cash was seized. A subsequent search of a flat on the same street led to the seizure of more cannabis.

He has been released on police bail until November 7, pending further inquiries.
