A 51-year-old man from Earls Barton has been charged with the cultivation of cannabis after officers executed a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant on Sunday night.

Officers raided a property in Broad Street and found 41 cannabis plants after receiving intelligence from the local community earlier on in the day.

The 51-year-old man was arrested, charged and appeared before Wellingborough Magistrates Court yesterday (August 6).

He was bailed and is due to re-appear at Wellingborough Magistrates next month.
