VIDEO & GALLERY: Man arrested after police find 31 cannabis stalks at March home

A MAN has been arrested after police found more than 30 stalks of cannabis during a drugs raid in March this morning.

Officers spent hours clearing drug-growing equipment - including heaters and lights - from the property, in Hundred Road.

The 31 cannabis stalks were discovered hanging in a tent, kept in a bedroom. A quantity of cannabis resin and an old firearm were also discovered.

A 43-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of producing cannabis and taken to Huntingdon Police Station.

PC Andrew Rudd said: “We have probably caught it just before it hit the streets, so this is quite a good result for us.
