Officers from the Suffolk police Scorpion team have arrested a man after shutting down what they described as an illegal cannabis cafe.

The Scorpion team is designed to proactively disrupt criminal activity.

In a post on its Twitter account, the team said: “Door forced open and shop shut down on illegal cannabis cafe in #Sudbury by #scorpionwest.”

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: “Police from the West Scorpion team conducted warrant under section 23 of Misuse of Drugs Act on November 19 in Sudbury.

“During a search of the premises on Mills Road various forms of cannabis and drugs paraphernalia were located and seized.

“One male, aged 28, was arrested on suspicion of drug driving and suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class ’B’ drugs and taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning. He has since been released under investigation pending further enquiries.”
