AN Albanian man has been charged with the production of a controlled drug after more than 150 cannabis plants were found in the town centre.

On Wednesday, officers from Barnsley Central’s Neighbourhood Policing Team conducted a warrant in a business premise in the town centre.

It came after other business owners prompted the police about what was going on.

More than 150 plants were discovered within the two rooms of the property and the electrics were bypassed.

A 32-year-old male was located within the property and was charged.
