POLICE launched raids on three homes in Chatteris today (Friday) as part of a day of action in the town.

The raids at three separate addresses were carried out under warrants linked to suspected drug use.

Officers first smashed their way into an address in Lindsells Walk where a drug sniffer dog was also used to search the property.

The second raid happened at Neils Way, where again officers broke down the front door to gain entry.

And finally officers attended a property in Heronshaw Walk where they found the door unlocked and were able to simply walk in.

A spokesman said a 24-year-old woman was cautioned for possession of cannabis at the Lindsells Walk home and a 35-year-old was also cautioned for possession of the Class C drug at Heronshaw Close. There was nothing found at Neils Close.

But officers were investigating a possible discovery of cannabis plants after an eagle-eyed PCSO reported seeing some growing in a greenhouse in Wimpole Street.

Elsewhere in Chatteris officers were clamping down on illegal parking and other motoring offences as well as anti-social behaviour.
