Castlewellan cannabis factories: four held

By Staff Reporter

Four people have been arrested in connection with the seizure of £150,000 worth of cannabis from two suspected factories.

The arrests followed searches on Tuesday in the Circular Road and Corrywood Park areas of Castlewellan, Co Down, where police discovered "two substantial cannabis factories".

Three people, two 33-year-old males and a 22-year-old woman, were detained in the Circular Road area and a 30-year-old man was arrested in Corrywood Park.

DCI Ian Wilson said he was "extremely pleased" to have shut down the factories and prevented the drugs from circulating.
