Cannabis, cash and fake gun seized in police raids

Three men have been arrested after a large cannabis farm was uncovered alongside £6,000 cash and an imitation firearm.

Police made the discovery after searches at two addresses in Leigh, Greater Manchester, on Tuesday.

Two men, aged 21 and 24, were arrested on suspicion of production of cannabis and possession of an imitation firearm.

A 29-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of production of cannabis, police say.

Det Insp Pat Wood said intelligence gathered during the raid would help build a picture of the illegal activity happening across the area.

He said: "The perception that the cultivation of cannabis is victimless couldn't be further from the truth.

"Drug trafficking is a major source of revenue for organised crime gangs, and funds other elements of serious crime such as firearms and modern slavery.

"We will continue to pursue these types of offenders and remove them from our streets."
