Two men arrested, one charged after Blaenavon drug warrant

A cannabis cultivation with around 1,000 plants was dismantled by Torfaen officers with the arrest of two men.

Officers carried out a warrant at a disused commercial premises in Ton Mawr Street, Blaenavon, on Sunday 27 August.

Following a search of the property, close to 1,000 cannabis plants were located and seized.

Two men, aged 28 and 31, were arrested on suspicion of produce a controlled drug of class B.

The 28-year-old man was later charged with this offence while the 31-year-old man remains in police custody.

PC Danielle Lundrigan, the officer in the case, said:

“Every cannabis factory we dismantle helps prevent a vicious cycle of crime.

“By disrupting the source of the operations, the plants are stopped from an onward sale into our communities and the profits are prevented from going on to fund other crime.

“We’re committed to protecting our communities from drugs and the associated crime around supply, all of which can have a devastating impact on people’s lives, communities and local businesses.

“We continue to ask anyone with any information or concerns about drug dealing or supply in their area to get in touch.”
