Police say they have found ‘evidence of cannabis being grown’ after raiding a property in Charnley Road, at around 5.15 p.m. on Wednesday, August 10. Three men were arrested at the scene. The value of the cannabis has been estimated at £500k.
Blackpool South MP Scott Benton has praised Lancashire Police saying, “Thanks to a tip off by a member of the public, police raided a building in the central holiday area where they found a huge cannabis farm. I’ve spent this afternoon with our police and had the opportunity to see their work in taking apart the farm which has prevented drugs with a value of up to £500,000 coming onto our streets.”
