POLICE have arrested a 58-year-old man after seizing £3,000 worth of cannabis plants thanks to help from the public.
Officers from the Dearne Safer Neighbourhood Team made the discovery after swooping on an address on Norman Street, Thurnscoe, last Thursday (4).
The suspect was arrested for cultivating cannabis and illegally extracting electricity from a mains source.
He was later released on bail until May.
Pc Steve Bray said: “We act on all information passed to us from members of the public.
“I would invite anyone who believes their neighbours may be growing cannabis to contact police immediately.”
