A TOTAL of around £1,000 in cash and 40 cannabis plants were seized by police during a raid on a home in the Comeytrowe area of Taunton.

Officers executed a warrant at the house in Burches Close on Wednesday morning following a tip off from a member of the public.

Two people were arrested - a man in his 30s was released on police bail pending further enquiries and a woman in her 20s was released without charge.

Sgt Dave Butter said: "This was a very successful operation.

"It demonstrates our commitment to stopping this kind of illegal activity and following up on intelligence from the public."
