A routine traffic stop led police to discover a suspected cannabis farm in a Douglas side street.

Officers raided the property on Falcon Street on Saturday, August 23, and seized a number of what is what is believed to be cannabis plants and associated paraphernalia.

This followed the arrest of a man when his vehicle was stopped by police.

A resident on Falcon Street said: ‘There was a lot of police activity. I saw police vans, CID, an inspector, a sniffer dog and forensics going in and out of the property. Something that looked like a lamp, a massive light and a tent were all taken away. It was a shock seeing something like that down our street.’

A man has been bailed pending further police inquiries.

A police spokesman said: ‘Police arrested a man following a traffic stop.

‘Subsequent inquiries led police to seize a number of what is believed to be cannabis plants and paraphernalia at an address in Douglas.

‘Inquiries are continuing.’
