Arrest following cannabis raid

First published in News

POLICE have arrested and charged a 47-year-old man following a raid on a flat in Latchford. 

Officers served a warrant at the property on Priory Street at around 2.10pm following suspicions about cannabis being grown in the building.  

More than 140 cannabis plants were recovered.

The address raided is above the Jack and Daniels Chinese takeaway.  

Police at the scene said that the terraced house immediately next to the takeaway had also been searched.

Neighbours complained that a strong smell of cannabis had been coming from the building for around six months. 

One resident, who did not wish to be named, said: "One half of this street tends to be quite decent but then it deteriorates  half way down." 

The man has been charged with possession of cannabis and has been remanded to appear before magistrates in Runcorn tomorrow, Friday.

Anyone with information can call police on 101.

Care to explain how Priory street is in Latchford, as judging by the map above, seems alot closer to the town centre....

I was always led to believe Latchford was called Latchford, due to the fact you cannot leave it without crossing water (by means of car.. I think you can get out up near thelwall viaduct by foot.. but I never walked that far).. And I was also led to believe Latchford extends down to Chester road.. The only difference being is the small local areas I.e westy, latchford and causeway.. but it is all still under a latchford postcode or area.. please correct me if I'm wrong anybody.. but that is my understanding.. so in reality Latchford is pretty big ;)
