Police discovered 20 mature cannabis plants and two caged dogs when they raided a house in Chorley.

Officers executed a drugs warrant at a property in Gillibrand Walks in the town.

Chorley Police Neighbourhood staff, Community Beat Managers and PCSOs swooped on the house following

community intelligence information.

Police dog handlers took the two dogs - thought to be American pit bulls - away.

Inspector Dave Robinson, of Chorley Police, revealed: “We found twenty mature cannabis plants and a couple of dogs that were seized, that would appear to be American pit bull type dogs.”

He said it was a successful raid and praised the use of community intelligence policing - in effect tip-offs from the public - which he said would continue to be used in the future in similar operations in the crackdown on crime.

“It’s an excellent result,” said the inspector.

“This is one in a series of community intelligence results.”

He added; “These set ups are very difficult to hide.

“There will always be someone in the community who will know something about them.

“Rest assured, we will act upon any intelligence we receive and we will have more success in the future.”

The house was unoccupied at the time of the raid.

No one has been arrested as yet.
