The Herald - - NEWS -

A MAN who ran a mas­sive cannabis farm in his flat – then claimed he planned to smoke the £70,000 crop by him­self – has been jailed for 18 months.

Lewis Maxwell’s cul­ti­va­tion was dis­cov­ered when a debt col­lec­tor forced open his door to en­force an un­paid gas bill.

He found an ex­ten­sive, “so­phis­ti­cated” cannabis plan­ta­tion in­side the flat in Mon­trose Street, Brechin.

Fis­cal de­pute Eilidh Robert­son told Dundee Sher­iff Court that, in to­tal, 133 plants were found.

Maxwell, 27, a pris­oner at HMP Perth, pleaded guilty to pro­duc­ing cannabis be­tween Oc­to­ber 24 2014 and April 24 2015 at an ad­dress in Mon­trose Street, Brechin.

He fur­ther ad­mit­ted be­ing con­cerned in the sup­ply of cannabis.
