Eastbourne man arrested for growing cannabis plants

An Eastbourne man has been charged with the production of cannabis after police raided his flat on Thursday (April 18).

Darren Muckleston, 37, of Etchingham Road has been bailed and is due to appear at Eastbourne Magistrates’ Court on May 3.

Local officers executed a drugs warrant at Muckleston’s flat and seized a large number of what are believed to be cannabis plants that were growing in the bedroom.

PC Dan Cloake, Operations Coordinator for Eastbourne District said, “I would urge anyone who has information about drug production or drug dealing in their area to call 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
