A man who claimed six large cannabis plants worth thousands of pounds were “for his own personal use” has been fined for growing the class B drug at a house in Wentworth.
The 24-year-old was voluntarily interviewed when Rural Crime Action Team officers carried out a warrant in Church Road on Thursday morning (July 25).
"Approximately six large cannabis plants were discovered with a potential street value of between £1,680 and £5,040" said a police spokesman.
"A 24-year-old man from Wentworth was voluntarily interviewed at the scene. He claimed the cannabis was his and that it was for his own personal use.
"He was handed a conditional caution for producing a class B drug - with conditions to pay a fine and that the cannabis and growing equipment be forfeited and destroyed."
