A DRUGS raid was carried out at a house in Bury this week.

Police officers executed a drugs warrant on Tuesday afternoon at an address in Devon Street, after receiving a tip-off from members of the public.

They recovered cannabis with a street value of £16,500, which has now been sent for destruction.
