Some of the cannabis plants recovered in the Eastwood drugs raid on Saturday.

A 17-YEAR-old boy was arrested after police raided a house in Eastwood and found more than 150 cannabis plants.

Officers from the Rotherham Central Neighbourhood Policing Team executed a warrant at the property on Lindley Street at 10.30am on Saturday. 

More than 150 cannabis plants were discovered at the property, police said.

"A 17-year-old boy from London was arrested on suspicion of production of cannabis," added the spokeswoman.

"He has since been released under investigation." 

Insp Sharron Wood from the Rotherham Central NPT said: "This was a fantastic result that showcases the ongoing efforts to keep illegal drugs off the streets of Rotherham.

"Warrants like this send a clear message to those suspected of being involved in the illicit drugs trade. We will continue to follow up on all reports of drug dealing and rely on the continued support of the public to provide information for us to act upon.

"Drug dealing is certainly not a victimless crime and we often see vulnerable people exploited for the gain of criminals."
