A GREAT Yarmouth man has been charged with possession of cannabis with intent to supply after police swooped on his home.
James Emmerson, 22, was arrested at his home in Marine Parade yesterday (Tuesday) where police seized a large amount of cannabis and cash.

The raid comes after Operation Octane, the county wide crackdown carried out by police last week, and a second drugs arrest on Monday.

The man, who is 30 and from the local area, was questioned by police and has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
Detective Sergeant Paul Morton of the Great Yarmouth Tactical Crime Unit said: “We have continued the good work carried out in the Yarmouth area last week as part of Operation Octane. These arrests keep that momentum going as we are acting on intelligence received since the day of action.”
Det Sg Morton urged anyone with information about substance misuse in Great Yarmouth to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
