TWO men have been arrested after officers carried out a drugs warrant at an address in Leek.

The warrant was executed at around 5.50pm yesterday (Thursday, February 6) at the house in Prince Street. After an initial search a small quantity of cannabis plants were seized and two men were arrested.

The men, aged 24 and 50, who are both from Leek, remain in police custody for questioning on suspicion of drug offences.

Inspector Jon Ward, Local Policing Team Commander for the Staffordshire Moorlands, said: “This warrant was carried out as a result of information received from the community and forms part of our ongoing work under Operation Nemesis, the force’s commitment to tackling drug dealing and drug related activity.

    The sooner cannabis is legally regulated the better. Our current system of prohibition has been an expensive, indefensible failure. Under a legal scheme, thousands of taxable jobs would be created, helping to massively boost our economy. It would also allow our police and court system to focus on real crime, such as murder and assault. Cannabis Volunteer Force (CVF) CVF Media Team cvf420.org
