Police seize 200 cannabis plants and gun from Derbyshire property
Around 200 suspected cannabis plants and a firearm have been recovered by police during a search of a Derbyshire property last week.
Officers seized the illegal grow and weapon from a home on Norman Road in Ripley on Wednesday, June 9.
No arrests have yet been made as Derbyshire police confirm that ‘enquiries are ongoing’ to determine whether the firearm was being kept inside the property illegally.
Sergeant Jo-Anne Brooks, of Ripley Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We will always work to take action whenever we receive information that there are suspected drugs offences, and I would like to thank the local community for reporting any concerns to us.
“I would urge anyone who may have an information about the misuse of drugs, any suspicions or concerns to contact us so that we can investigate and take appropriate steps to keep our area safe.”
