Teenager arrested in cannabis raid

A 19-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested on suspicion of dealing cannabis after a raid in Great Sankey on Friday.

Officers from Warrington West NPU executed a warrant at the home on Denver Drive at 7.50am.

They found a quantity of suspected cannabis resin.

It was seized and taken away for forensic examination.

The teenager was arrested on suspicion of possession of a class B drug with intent to supply.

He has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Sgt Gordon Jack said: "We will not tolerate any sort of behaviour that has a negative effect on the lives of others.

"The warrant was executed as a result of information from members of the public.

“We hope that the efforts of officers will reassure the community that we are listening to what they are saying and taking action where necessary.

"Information from members of the public is vital in the fight against drug related crime.”

For not tolerating "any sort of behaviour that has a negative effect on the lives of others", you sure messed up this guy's life.

What a stupid thing to say.

It's clear for anyone to see from this brief report that the police have clearly acted on the reports of the public who were obviously sick and tired of all kinds of people knocking on this chaps door at all hours of the day and night in search of Cannabis to cure their ailments....

and what sort of sentence do you expect him to get...a life changing one for the worst...No?

He will get a suspended sentence most likely. So IF he can stay out of further trouble being a law braking drug dealer shouldnt harm his future prospects should he wish to follow the path of an honest days work like the rest of us.

Seriously?! notatcreamfields talks the biggest load of sensationalist tripe on here.

His confused and loosely formed arguments are based on nothing more than media hysteria and his judgemental, bigoted attitude towards any group which he takes a dislike to appalling...

I feel sorry for anyone who agrees with even a word that comes from him.

If people were knocking on this young entrepeneur's door at all hours (assuming they were) then that is at least partly the fault of the law. If the trade in cannabis was legal they could pick it up from their local tesco along with a bottle of scotch and 20 ciggies.


Alternatively, if he was enterprising enough, he could open up a stall on the market selling it along assorted other merchandise.

Stop wasting time on cannabis and criminalising otherwise law abiding people.

I agree with old-codger, but in addition to that 2 states in the USA have recently legalised it completely. Along with a further 16 that have legalised it for medicinal use. Several European countries, including Spain have legalised it also.

The crime associated with this plant is purely driven by prohibition.

As for the comment regarding 'drug dealing filth'... are off licences, pubs and doctors surgeries not places where drug dealing takes place? They supply far more harmful and toxic substances...

If people only understood why it was prohibited in the first place, they would view this issue in a whole different light.
