Man caught growing cannabis plants jailed - Bedford

28/06/2013

A man who was caught tending young cannabis plants growing at a house in Bedford has been jailed for a year.

Polish born Marcin Zajaczkowski, 28, was found by police at the property in Prebend Street looking after 128 plants.

Luton Crown Court was told, the yield from the plants could have fetched anything from £21,000 to £51,000.

Marcin was living at the property at the time and the court was told he had been put under pressure from others to look after the crop as a way of repaying a debt he owed.

In court,  Zajaczkowski pleaded guilty to being concerned in the production of the cannabis plants on  04 December last year.

The court was told his partner is expecting their child later this year.
