POLICE busted two cannabis farms in two days.

After being tipped off by members of the community officers from the Rural neighbourhood police team (NPT) discovered a drugs farm in Kettlethorpe on Saturday and another in Ryhill on Monday.

About £1,200 worth of cannabis was recovered from both sites.

Inspector Richard Clare of the Rural NPT, said: “Intelligence from within the community is vital for us as a local NPT team as we base our policing on the concerns of our residents and want to make sure we are addressing their priorities.

“We know drugs issues have been of concern to residents in Kettlethorpe and Wakefield Rural recently and have made some good seizures over the past few days after focusing on this issue.

“Enquires remain ongoing and targeting drugs will remain a priority for us.”

Two men have been arrested in connection with the Kettlethorpe farm and police cautioned a man after the drugs find in Ryhill.
