Two men charged with conspiracy to supply after South Lynn drugs raid
Two men have been charged following the seizure of what police described as a "significant" quantity of cannabis in South Lynn earlier this week.
More than 200 plants were recovered from a property in Diamond Street on Tuesday, as part of what is understood to be a nationwide operation to tackle production of the drug.
Norfolk Police said today that two men, both aged 29, had been arrested in connection with the raid, in which a total of 218 plants were seized.
They were then transferred to the custody of the Derbyshire force, which is leading the investigation.
A Derbyshire Police spokesman has now confirmed that the men, whose names have so far not been released, have been charged with conspiracy to supply class B drugs.
She said: "This is part of an ongoing investigation and as such I am unable to release any further information at this time, due to investigative reasons."
However, the force has indicated that more details may be revealed in the next few days.
