Cannabis plants worth £3,500 found in Rosyth house
A MAN and a woman were arrested after cannabis plants worth £3,500 were discovered in a Rosyth house.
Police searched the property on Saturday leading to a 53-year-old male and a 31-year-old female being reported to the Procurator Fiscal for allegedly growing the plants and for interfering with the electricity supply.
Police across Fife made various drug searches throughout the weekend leading to the recovery of thousands of pounds' worth of illegal substances.
On Saturday, while attending a house fire in Cowdenbeath, officers found cannabis plants with a value of £19,000.
They said the fire was caused by the illegal efforts that had been made to by-pass the electricity meter.
A 34-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman are being reported to the Procurator Fiscal for growing these plants, and for interfering with the electricity supply.
Police made searches and recovered various illegal drugs in Methil (Friday), East Wemyss, Buckhaven (Saturday) and Cellardyke (Sunday).
Superintendent Alex Duncan, who is in charge of Operations, said, "This was a productive weekend with a considerable amount of drugs removed from the streets of Fife, some of which were as a result of our recent appeal to help us identify houses where Cannabis was being grown.
"It is only with the continued help and support from our communities that we can deliver these results and I would like to thank the public.
"This weekend has also shown that people who interfere with the electricity supply not only pose a considerable risk to themselves, but also to the houses and flats that adjoin their homes, as well as my officers who have to enter these houses.
"This practice is not only reckless, it is extremely dangerous."
Anyone who has any information about drugs in their community can contact Fife Police on 0845 600 5702 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
