‘Grow it and you risk jail’ warning

POLICE say the result of a recent court case shows that if anyone is caught growing drugs, they risk facing a jail sentence.

Inspector Dave Browning of Upper Valley Neighbourhood Policing Team said a 30-year-old man from Industrial Street, Todmorden, had been sent to prison for eight months after being found guilty at Bradford Crown Court in March of producing cannabis.

Inspector Browning said: “This sentence sends out a strong message to anyone thinking of producing cannabis in our area – they could receive a custodial sentence.”
