TWO men have been arrested after police discovered a cannabis farm at two properties in South Tyneside.
Officers found 100 plants during a search of two neighbouring flats in Victoria Road East, Hebburn, last Wednesday.
The discovery of the cannabis farms is the fourth to be made by police in South Tyneside in just over a month.
Two men, aged 29 and 34, have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the production of cannabis.
Both have been released on bail pending further inquiries.
Neighbourhood Inspector Ian King said: “Northumbria Police actively target the production and supply of drugs in South Tyneside and will seek to take action in relation to intelligence received.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 ext 69191, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
