They found two dogs, which had been stolen in Bluntihsham on Wednesday (June 3), a stolen quad bike, a suspected stolen buggy and a further three vehicles linked to crime.

They also discovered 16 cannabis plants, estimated to be worth more than £13,000.

Two men, in their 20s and 40s, and a teenager were arrested on suspicion of producing cannabis and remain in custody at Parkside Police Station.
