Man arrested after drugs warrant in Skelmersdale

Wednesday, March 22, 2023

A man has been arrested after officers executed a misuse of drugs warrant at an address in Skelmersdale.

As a result of community intelligence, officers gained entry to the property in the Tanhouse area yesterday, (Tuesday, 21st March) and recovered a large amount of harvested and dried out cannabis.

A 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug. He has since been released under investigation.

People can often pass off cannabis production as 'just a bit of weed', whilst overlooking the danger and disorder it brings to families in the neighbourhood.
