Police carried out a drugs warrant in St Albans and discovered a suspected cannabis factory.
The warrant was carried out today in Blake Close and involved officers from Herts Police’s Scorpion Team and the St Albans Safer Neighbourhood Team.
Once inside the house officers discovered the suspected cannabis factory and seized four dogs, which are being examined to see if they are a prohibited breed.
A man in his 30s from St Albans was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis, possession of a Class B drug and possession of a prohibited dog under the Dangerous Dogs Act. He remains in police custody.
St Albans Det Insp Alex Warwick said: “The supply and use of drugs can blight communities and families and will not be tolerated in St Albans.
