Two arrested in cannabis raid
A MAN and a woman in their 20s have been arrested on suspicion of dealing drugs.
Police officers found nine cannabis plants when they raided a home in Forth Avenue in Portishead yesterday (Thurs).
A 29-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman were arrested for possessing the class B drug on suspicion of selling it on. They have since been bailed.
Officers seized the plants, five bags of vegetable matter and seeds from the home.
Inspector Kerry Paterson said: “Cannabis is seen by some as a lower level drug, but Avon and Somerset police take it very seriously.

“I hope this warrant reassures local residents that we take drug-related crime very seriously in Portishead.”
