Two people were arrested and a quantity of cannabis seized following two drugs raids in Trowbridge and Warminster.

Officers executed warrants at addresses in Bisham Lane, Trowbridge, and Folly Lane, Warminster, on the morning of Thursday May 9.

A 36-year-old man from Warminster and a 27-year-old woman from Bath were arrested on suspicion of production of cannabis and have since been released under investigation while police enquiries are continuing.

More than 200 plants and around 3kg of dried Class B drugs were seized from the addresses, as well as a quantity of equipment and drug production paraphernalia.

PC Sarah Greenman, from West Wiltshire Community Tasking Team, said: "This activity was part of a wider investigation into the production and dealing of drugs in the two towns.

"We know the community is concerned about illegal drugs activity and anything we can do to take the products off our streets and protect vulnerable people has to be a good thing.

"It is important to point out that drug dealing is not a victimless crime - it is often linked to wider criminality, including anti-social behaviour and violence.

"We would urge anyone who has information about the production of drugs or drug dealing, to report their concerns to police."
