The male and female residents at the house on Elder Avenue, were arrested on Tuesday for production of cannabis, possession of a controlled drug and abstract use of electricity.

Insp Jackie Turton of the South East Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “On searching the property we discovered that the electricity had been tampered with which is a dangerous thing to do.

“We would encourage members of the public to call us if they suspect anyone of cultivating drugs.”
