The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - News Highlands & Islands -

A 32-year-old Gran­town man grew up to £21,000 of cannabis in the loft of his home.

Marcin Rozwad­owski of Strath­spey Court ad­mit­ted pro­duc­ing cannabis on July 17,2016, at In­ver­ness Sher­iff Court yes­ter­day.

Fis­cal de­pute Robert Weir told Sher­iff Gor­don Fleet­wood that po­lice re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that there may be a cannabis farm in the prop­erty and ob­tained a search war­rant.

“Of­fi­cers found tents, lamps, other equip­ment and cannabis plants in the loft with a to­tal of be­tween £6,000 and £21,000.

“There was no in­di­ca­tion of sup­ply. He told of­fi­cers that he had a cannabis habit. He said he was grow­ing it for him­self in­stead of buy­ing it else­where.”

Sher­iff Fleet­wood told de­fence lawyer Marc Dick­son: “The wor­ry­ing as­pect is that he was grow­ing it in a house with a young child.”

Rozwad­owski was or­dered to carry out 250 hours of un­paid com­mu­nity work. All plants and equip­ment were con­fis­cated.
