A MAN has been arrested after police found 'a large quantity of suspected drugs' and 'significant amount of cash' at his home.

Police arrested a man yesterday afternoon after they found suspected drugs as well as money at his home while they were carrying out a visit with a housing association officer.

A spokesman for Weymouth and Portland Police Neighbourhood Team said: "Whilst at the property a large quantity of suspected Class B and Class C drugs was located along with a significant amount of cash."

"One male is currently in custody awaiting interview."

The Neighbourhood Team had already arrested a woman earlier in the day for an 'outstanding matter' and she is helping police with their enquiries.
