A NUMBER of cannabis plants were recovered from a loft in a Teesside home at the weekend.

On Saturday, January 4, police executed a drugs warrant at an address on Pickering Grove in Hartlepool.

Officers said they discovered cannabis plants being grown in the loft area and that an occupant would be 'dealt with' for drugs-related offences at a later date.

Temporary Sergeant Raine of the Hartlepool Neighbourhood Policing Team said: "We will continue to listen to our communities and respond to their concerns especially around the production and supply of controlled drugs".
