A search of nearby addresses found several kilograms of vacuum packed cannabis hidden in a loft, two established grows and £20,000 hidden under a bath in one of the properties. A fourth man was arrested.

The men, aged 22, 28, 28 and 36, are currently in custody being questioned on suspicion of cannabis cultivation and money laundering.

A spokesperson for police said: “Preston Taskforce stopped a suspicious looking vehicle leading to two arrested for drug and money laundering offences.

“This led to a house search where PD Buddy was asked to assist. He made light work of locating approximately £20000 cash well hidden under the bath!”
