Suspected pirate station raided in West Midlands

Recording equipment believed to be used for pirate radio and cannabis plants have been seized from a Bilston (near Wolverhampton, West Midlands) house.

The plants and equipment were found in a raid by West Midlands Police.
A police spokesman said officers executed a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act at a property in Wellington Road at around 1130 GMT on Tuesday (Feb 8).

Two men, aged 55 and 33, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the production of cannabis, and bailed pending further inquiries.

He added officers had seized nine cannabis plants and hydroponics equipment as well as a number of computers, webcams and music mixing decks.

An address in Castlecroft Avenue, Castlecroft, was subsequently searched and hydroponics equipment found.

The radio equipment was handed over to enforcement officers from the Office of Communications (Ofcom) who will decide on any further action.
