On 31st October 2023, officers stopped a vehicle on Copse Road in Fleetwood.
Following a search a large quantity of cannabis was located in the boot of the vehicle, having an estimated worth of £15,000.
A man, 44, from Fleetwood, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs and has been bailed until 30th January 2024.
Chief Inspector Dave Hannan said: “This was a great proactive stop by officers who uncovered a significant quantity of cannabis.
“Drugs, and the criminalities surrounding them, can have a significant impact on local communities and we are dedicated to tackling these issues.
“We will not tolerate drugs in Fleetwood and would encourage anyone with information to come forward.”
