They subsequently arrested a man in his 40s on suspicion of drug driving, possession of a Class-B drug, and for being concerned in the supply of Class-B drugs.

Further enquiries led police to search an address in Thoresby Road in Foxwood where they discovered what is suspected to be a cannabis grow.


A large quantity of Class-B drugs and equipment was seized from the property.

The man was then arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the production of a Class-B drug and released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.
