A WESTON man has been charged with supplying and producing cannabis after police found £3,500 worth of the drug in his car.
Carl Myers was subject to a stop check by officers on the Bournville estate on February 12 and was arrested after half a kilo of cannabis resin was seized from his car.
A subsequent search of the 29-year-old’s home in Longridge Way resulted in 20 cannabis plants, which would potentially yield a further kilo of the drug, being seized, as well as growing equipment.
He was charged yesterday (Wed) with conspiracy to supply cannabis, production of cannabis and two counts of possession with intent to supply cannabis.
Myers is due to appear at North Somerset Magistrates Court on July 9.
Another man, Dean Cowell from Downside Road in Weston, was arrested on March 18.
The 27-year-old was charged yesterday (Wed) with conspiracy to supply cannabis resin and offering to supply cannabis.
He is also due to appear at the magistrates court on July 9.
Neighbourhood Sergeant Colin Batchelor said: “People all too often dismiss crimes relating to cannabis as insignificant or minor – but there is often big money involved, not to mention the harm it can do to individuals and communities.
“We will act on information people give us – so if you suspect someone of growing or dealing the drug, report them.”
Information can be given to the police by calling 101 or by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
