OFFICERS in Goldthrope are appealing for information about the possible supply and possession of drugs, following the seizure of 105 cannabis plants.
The Neighbourhood Team have been working hard to gather information and intelligence in relation to the distribution of drugs across the area after discovering a ‘significant’ cannabis set-up in Bolton-Upon-Dearne earlier this month.
Officers received a report from the landlord of a property on Mill View on the morning of Sunday 3 June, where it was discovered that the house was being used to grow cannabis.
PC Amy Mellor said: "There were three rooms in the house with plants that had clearly recently been cropped but would’ve once contained a large amount of cannabis. We also recovered 105 plants from the attic.
“It was clearly a significant, sophisticated set up that had been there for some time. We don’t believe anyone was living at the property and we are working on the assumption that false details were given when applying to rent the property.
“While our investigation into this continues, we’re also appealing to members of the public for information they may have on the possible supply and distribution of drugs across the area."
If you have any information relating to the possession, supply or distribution of drugs, please contact 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
