Police seize cannabis plants from address in Melton

Police have seized more cannabis plants off the streets following a raid on a property in Melton over the weekend.

Officers were notified of potential cannabis plants inside the old community hall in Park Lane, Melton on Friday and forced entry to the property.

It's the second raid of cannabis growing facilities recently after officers discovered a facotry in Waltham On The Wolds as we reported last month.

A Leicestershire Police spokesperson said: "Shortly after 12.30pm on Friday (8 March) it was reported there may have been cannabis plants inside the community hall in Park Lane. Officers attended and found a number of plants inside the building. No-one was present and no arrests were made."

Officers recently intercepted a package at Melton's Royal Mail sorting depot last week following reports of a suspect package.

PCSO French posted on social media about the package saying: " I was called to the Melton Royal Mail Sorting Office to seize a suspect package. This later proved to contain cannabis which has subsequently been destroyed."
