A spokesman wrote: "As a result of pro-active policing in the Callon, Ribbleton and St. Matthew's areas of Preston due to recent community concerns about gang-related crime & disorder, an abandoned car was searched and a substantial amount of cannabis was found inside."

The discovery of the Class B substance was part of Operation Sirius which targets organised crime in Lancashire.
