Cops raid drugs factories

POLICE raids uncovered two cannabis factories in the Express area last week.

Officers from the South Kirkby neighbourhood police team (NPT) executed a search warrant on Tombridge Crescent, Kinsley, at 9am on Thursday, January 5.

They found 20 cannabis plants.

A 32-year-old woman and a 33-year-old man were arrested and bailed pending further inquiries.

At 8.30pm, also on Thursday, January 5, officers uncovered eight cannabis plants at a house on Hoyland Terrace, South Kirkby.

A 19-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man were cautioned for the production of cannabis.

The plants from both properties have been destroyed.

A police spokeswoman said: “We appreciate any information about drug crime.

“If anyone has any information about someone who they suspect of being involved in drug crime, they should get in touch with police immediately.”

Anyone with any information should call the NPT on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
