Four people have been arrested and a large amount of cannabis seized following investigations by police in Ashford.

Officers from the town’s Local Policing Team went to an address in the Kingsnorth area after suspicious activity was reported on the evening of Tuesday 20 June 2023.

Four men – all aged between 21 and 41 and from Surrey and south London – were arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis.

The cannabis cultivation now shut down by police.

More than 100 plants, as well as growing equipment, were seized from inside the property and an investigation by Folkestone CID is ongoing.

Detective Inspector Simon Johnson, of Ashford Community Safety Unit, said: ‘The money made from cultivations of this kind invariably ends up in the hands of criminal groups so we will continue to close down sites at every opportunity.

‘I urge anyone who fears drugs may be being produced or sold in their area to contact Kent Police through our website or by calling 999 if a crime is in progress.’
