A search of the house yielded an additional 57.5 grammes and a precision scale with traces of cannabis.

Two other men, 25 and 35, who had been present during the search were also arrested.

Officers found a half-smoked joint in the 25-year-old’s possession and one in the other 35-year-old’s  car.

They were charged and released to face court at a later date.
