Twenty-five cannabis plants were seized by police in a raid on a house in Kingshurst last weekend following a tip-off from the public.

Someone told officers they suspected cannabis was being grown in Oakthorpe Drive and that the address was guarded by two dogs.

Police raided the house on May 7, with help from the dog team who were able to subdue two rottweilers.

The electricity meter box had been tampered with and the electricity board was called to make the meter safe.

The owner of the house, a 29-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis and abstraction of electricity. He is currently on police bail pending further enquiries.

Acting Sergeant Tom Jones from the Kingshurst and Fordbridge team said: “We will continue to stamp out drug cultivation across Solihull.

“If anyone has concerns about cultivation I would urge them to call us in the knowledge that where we can act we do.”
