A woman has been arrested after police found around £45,000 worth of suspected skunk cannabis at a Saltash address.

Officers spoke to the 45-year-old woman from Saltash as she sat in a silver Peugeot car in Manor Street, Stonehouse, just a few minutes after midnight on Sunday, September 16.

The officers became suspicious after they found her to be in possession of three mobile phones and several hundred pounds in cash.

A search of a property in Saltash a short while later uncovered nine half-kilo vacuum-packed bags of suspected skunk cannabis.

The cannabis has been sent for further analysis but police say if it is confirmed as the class B drug it could have a street value of around £45,000.

The woman was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of a controlled class B drug and taken to Charles Cross police station.

Following interview she was released on police bail until December 18 pending further inquiries.

Anyone with information about the incident should call police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting crime reference number EC/12/8860.
