CANNABIS with an estimated street value of £25,000 has been seized during a raid at a house in Sterling Close, Willenhall.

Two rooms in the house were crammed full of mature cannabis and the electricity supply to the property had also been tampered with.

A 37-year-old man from Willenhall was arrested at the property on Saturday afternoon on suspicion of producing class B drugs. He has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

It is the second drugs warrant to be carried out in less than a week by officers in Willenhall and Binley.

Sergeant Jason Newell said: "Community intelligence has again proved successful in the fight against drugs. Please keep approaching us with information we do listen and act upon it."
