Neighborhood Enforcement Sergeant David Gill said: “This was a significant discovery after local residents reported to us their concerns about a property being used to grow cannabis.

“Drug manufacture and supply harms our communities and is linked to broader criminal activity. This arrest demonstrates our commitment to disrupting the supply of drugs in Hastings and St Leonards.

“This demonstrates our determination to act on information brought to us by the community about drug trafficking and to act quickly to keep our communities safe.

“We encourage the public to report their concerns about anti-social behaviour, drug dealing and knife crime through the Sussex Police website or via 101. Always call 999 in an emergency.” Around £80,000 worth of cannabis seized in Hastings
