Cannabis plants discovered in Billingshurst property

Sussex Police have discovered cannabis plants while conducting a Dangerous Dogs Act warrant on a Billingshurst property.

Prevention Enforcement Teams and Sussex Police Dog Handlers conducted the warrant at a house in Arun Road on Monday (1 October).

While officers were collecting the dog, they discovered around 20 cannabis plants with a street value of thousands of pounds.

Prevention Enforcement Sergeant Jodie White said: “We were conducting a warrant to retrieve the dog at the property after it had previously injured a man who visited the address.

"In the process of the detaining the dog we located the plants, which were subsequently seized.

“We are dedicated in preventing the supply of drugs causing harm to the community and this discovery will disrupt the distribution of the drug to the area.

“We are appealing to anyone who may have noticed anyone going into this house or any recent suspicious behaviour to report it to us without delay.”
