Well take this story off, if he has to remain unnamed for legal reasons then it suggest that by naming him would hinder the court case, if i was him i would be naming myself!!!!!!!!

They haven't named him because he hasn't yet been charged that's all.

he has been bailed so i would have thought he had been charged, if you have not been charged how can they bail you?

Bailed pending further enquiries. Upon completion of further enquiries the decision will be made whether or not to charge.

Not every other house is growing weed on that street. I'm from Blythe street, I'm self employed and I know a few others that live on that street would say that you know less than you think. CP
