Man jailed after discovery of cannabis factory
A man has been jailed after a cannabis factory was discovered in Enfield.
Van Tuan Nguyen, 26, of no fixed abode, was caught growing almost 300 plants in the upstairs of a town house in Thorneycroft Drive.
Police stormed the property on June 26 and Nguyen tried to flee by running from the front room towards the back door, where he was detained.
He was found guilty of cultivating cannabis on Friday, September 7, at Wood Green Grown Court and was sentenced to 27 months in jail.
Nguyen pleaded guilty in court, saying he had illegally travelled to the UK to grow cannabis to pay off a debt he owed in Vietnam.
He will be deported once he is released.
