Police seized thousands of pounds worth of cannabis after attending an address to locate and arrest a man for failing to attend court.
Officers went to the address in the Gossops Green area of Crawley on September 19.
They were looking to locate a man for failure to attend court.
Inside the property, officers from the Specialist Enforcement Unit could see a man potentially trying to conceal evidence.
They entered the property, and arrested the man inside on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of a class B drug.
It was revealed that a large quantity of cannabis had been hidden in a bag for life, which the man had attempted to hide under a bed in his mother’s bedroom.
Police also found a cool box containing a further large amount of the class B drug in deal bags inside.
Meanwhile a second man was arrested nearby the property on suspicion of failing to attend court, and being concerned in the supply of a class B drug.
The two 29-year-old men have been bailed, pending further investigation.
Detective Chief Inspector Karrie Bohanna said: “The two men arrested, had unsuccessfully tried to conceal a large quantity of drugs inside the house when police attended. Those drugs have been seized.
"This case highlights our determination to catch criminals and disrupt the supply of drugs which causes so much harm in our communities.”
