Pair arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis.

Following the discovery of 74 cannabis plants on three separate growing sites in a private woodland in West Suffolk, police have arrested two men, aged 25 and 30, in Bury St Edmunds, on Wednesday, August 12, on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and criminal damage.

The 25-year-old from Bedfordshire and the 30 year-old from Bury St Edmunds were taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre where they were questioned by officers. They were both subsequently released under investigation pending further enquiries.

We would urge farmers and landowners to regularly check remote/private locations on their land and report any similar finds to police.
