Man held in raid on Salisbury cannabis 'factory'

A man has been charged after an estimated £500,000 worth of cannabis was seized from an address in Salisbury.

Officers from Wiltshire Constabulary raided the property on Old Blandford Road on Wednesday following a tip-off.

A spokesman said almost 800 plants and growing equipment were taken away.

"A 21-year-old man from Vietnam was arrested and later charged with being concerned in the production of cannabis plants," he said.

The suspect remanded in custody to appear at Salisbury magistrates' court at a later date.
