Two arrested over cannabis find in Bath
Two men have been arrested in Bath after what police describe as a small cannabis factory was found at a house in the city.
Officers raided a house in Weston yesterday and found 16 cannabis plants being grown in a garden outhouse, along with cannabis production equipment.

A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of producing a Class B controlled drug, and possessing an offensive weapon. He was bailed until November 14.

The drugs warrant was part of the Operation Relentless exercise across Bath and north east Somerset, which over the past three weeks has also seen suspected burglars arrested and stolen property seized.
Officers are working with the University of Bath and Bath Spa University to offer new students crime prevention advice, after four break-ins at the Claverton Down campus this month in which laptops were stolen. Messages have been sent out via Facebook and Twitter and a 36-year-old man from Bristol was yesterday arrested on suspicion of burglary and bailed.
The operation also saw police checking vehicles in the Bath area using automatic number plate recognition technology. One vehicle was taken off the road for having no insurance, two drivers were given on-the-spot fines for having no MOT and six drivers were breath-tested.
Police teams working with B&NES Council have also been active across the district looking for rogue traders – unscrupulous workmen who tend to target the elderly and vulnerable.
