POLICE have seized more than 60 plants, believed to be cannabis, from a house in Chipping Sodbury.

Officers were called to the property in Hatters Lane at about 12.30pm yesterday (May 14).

After being unable to contact the tenant, a representative of the landlord had visited the property and seen growing equipment inside.

Officers found evidence of plants being grown in three rooms of the house.

A team from Avon and Somerset Constabulary's Operation Viscount attended the scene and seized the plants and growing equipment. Operation Viscount is a specialist team dedicated to tackling cannabis production across the Avon and Somerset policing area.

Neighbourhood Sergeant Rob Cainey said: “Our enquiries are continuing, but I would obviously like to thank the person who called to report this.

"We welcome calls from anyone with information about suspected criminal activity.”

Canabis is harmless. It's rediculus that public funds are wasted on such laws.
