TWO people were arrested for cultivating drugs out of their Fishermead flat.

Police were called to a flat in Polruan Place at around 7.30pm on Tuesday, January 25 after it was reported to them by neighbours that there had been some suspicious behaviour in the area.

The neighbours, thinking that someone was attempting to break into the flat next door, called police worried about the safety of their own property.

Police soon came round to inspect the flat and the surrounding area and when they did they found a small cannabis cultivation set up in one of the flats bedrooms

Approximately 20 plants were seized and taken away by police after a search.

A 32-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs.

They were released on police bail
