Hundreds of cannabis lollipops and gummies seized in Swindon

By Barrie Hudson - 18 April 2024


More than 1000 cannabis gummies and lollies have been seized following a search of a property in Park North, Swindon.

The property was searched as part of a separate investigation, and a woman in her 30s was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug. She has since been released on bail.

Insp Winter of Swindon Police said: "It is scary how these just look like sweets. We found more than a thousand sweets ready for packaging, multiple mould trays of gummies setting in the fridge and freezer and a cardboard box of packaged sweets and lollies with over 100g of cannabis.

"Cannabis edibles can be dangerous, and with bright packaging, they can be particularly appealing to children and young people.

"We take all offences involving drugs very seriously and would urge people to continue reporting information to us.”

Those concerned about drug-related crime in their area, or who think someone may be a victim of drug exploitation, is asked to call the police on 101. 

In an emergency they should call 999.

People can also make reports via or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via
