STOCKTON Response Officers seized a large amount of cannabis worth around £4,000 from a property on Renvyle Avenue in Stockton in the early hours of Saturday, January 2.

The cannabis was discovered by chance when officers were carrying out enquiries in relation to a man who was wanted on prison recall and a number of other alleged offences.

Other drugs paraphernalia was also seized from the address and three men aged 27, 28 and 29 were arrested on suspicion of drugs offences and released pending further enquiries.

Shortly after, officers arrested the wanted man in the Roseworth area of Stockton and he has now been recalled back to prison.
