Three drug dens closed on same Coventry street

Coventry Editorial 10th Nov, 2023   0

POLICE have seized more than 450 cannabis plants and made arrests after swooping on three drug dens on the same Coventry street.

The Hillfields neighbourhood team acted on information about homes on Colchester Street being converted for drug production.

Officers executed warrants on Wednesday (November 8) and discovered plants with a street value of up to £500,000, while electricity was dangerously bypassed.

Two men, aged 21 and 32, were arrested and later charged with the production of cannabis and abstracting electricity.

They appeared at Coventry Magistrates Court yesterday (November 9) where they were remanded into custody.
