A 30-year-old man has been charged with cultivating cannabis after police raided his flat on Corsham High Street.

Kamil Mazurkiewicz was arrested on February 12 after the raid at 11.30am, and will appear at North West Wiltshire Magistrates Court on February 27.

Corsham Neighbourhood Policing Team Sergeant Nick Cooke said: “A total of 11 plants were found in the raid.

“We have had complaints about the smell of cannabis coming from the shop below the flat, and PC Hazel Anderson did a lot of work with regard to it and obtained a warrant from the magistrates’ court.”

The raid is not believed to be linked to the major drugs factory found in a third-floor flat in Alexander House on the High Street last month.
