Three arrests made after raid on Northampton 'cannabis farm'


Three men have been charged following a police raid on a Northampton cannabis farm.

Shaheed Saeed, 36, of Esher Court, off St Gregory's Road was arrested along with Mohammed Hersi, 32, and Mohammed Said, 25, - both of no fixed abode - and all were charged with possession with intent to supply class-B drugs.

They were released on bail to appear in court at a later date.

A fourth arrest was made but no charges were brought.

Police arrived at the flat in Alliston Gardens, off Semilong Road, around 12:30 on February 15 after reports of "a sudden stink of weed up and down the street."

A resident, who asked not to be named, said: "There was a whole room jam-packed with it."

Mohammed Hersi and Mohammed Said are both of no-fixed-abode.

A police spokeswoman said: "An amount of cannabis was found at a property in Alliston Gardens.

"Investigations are ongoing. If anyone has any information please contact Northamptonshire Police on 101."
