THREE men have been charged with drugs offences after police seized more than £1m worth of cannabis in West Norfolk.

Lance Stephen Lewis, 41, of Ketts Hill in Necton; Benjamin Paul Heward, 46, of Woodhill Rise in Norwich; and German national Rainer Eberhard Doss, 53, of Great Yarmouth, appeared at King's Lynn Magistrates' Court on Saturday.

They were all charged with conspiracy to supply controlled drugs, namely Class B, and remanded in custody. Lewis was also charged with possession of a shot gun without a licence.

The charges follow a raid last Thursday, when police seized cannabis with an estimated street value of £1.1m.

The raid was the result of work by the Serious and Organised Crime section of the Forces Investigations Directorate, working with the Force Intelligence Directorate.

They will appear at Norwich Magistrates' Court on November 16.
