Police have released the picture of a man they want to speak to in connection with a drugs ring operating across Preston and Lancashire.

It comes after police raided a house in Deepdale and discovered £50,000 worth of cannabis during Wednesday (4 July).

The cannabis factory in Skeffington Road is the latest in a string of raids as part of Operation Renard across the North West.

DS Stu Peall, from Lancashire Police’s Human Trafficking Team, said: “We need to locate this man as part of our investigation and are asking anyone who may recognise him to get in touch.”

Five Vietnamese nationals were arrested and linked to cannabis production.
