POLICE uncovered a cannabis factory with plants worth around £20,000 in a Carmarthenshire village as the fifth in a series of raids was carried out.

Dyfed-Powys Police also recovered two quad bikes and an off-road motorbike, which are all suspected of being stolen.

Officers entered the house at around 9.30am yesterday (Thursday, May 21), acting on information that there was a cannabis cultivation at the property.

They seized 16 mature cannabis plants, 20 cannabis saplings, over 450g of herbal cannabis in tubs, and approximately 2.9g of brown powder which is suspected to be heroin.

The cannabis is estimated to have a street value of £20,000.

Officers also recovered two Kawasaki 300 quad bikes and a Honda off-road motorbike, all of which had their serial numbers removed.

Two people – a 44-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man – were arrested on suspicion of the production and possession of controlled substances, and theft. They have been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

This was the fifth warrant executed in and around Carmarthen this week, as teams crack down on the supply of drugs in the area.
