Two Arrested In Whitehaven After Cumbria Police Drug Warrant Executed

Cumbria Police have arrested two people and seized about 400 suspected cannabis plants after executing a misuse of drugs warrant in Whitehaven.

The find was made on Wednesday September 14 after officers carried out searches at a property in Market Place at 8am.

Detective Inspector Martyn Park said: “The public are likely to see a larger-than-normal police presence around this property as our enquiries continue.

“We take all suspected drugs cultivation seriously and would continue to urge anyone who has any suspicions about any buildings that might be used for illegal purposes to come forward with information.”

Two men – aged 30 and 26 – were arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis.

They remain in custody today.
