His suspicions were confirmed after fellow officers obtained a warrant to enter the house and found several areas set up as growing rooms.

The site was secured while investigations were carried out at the scene and cannabis plants and growing equipment was seized.

Enquiries are continuing. Anyone with information should telephone 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
