According to prosecuting attorney Kate Barnes, the bedroom has been converted to accommodate 10 cannabis plants and a grow tent. A 47-year-old man in the U.K. has received a suspended prison sentence after calling police to report a potential burglary, only to lead officers to an illegal cannabis grow in his own home. Harrison, who breached a previous suspended sentence for a charge of handling stolen goods, pleaded guilty to production of a controlled drug class B and breaching a suspended sentence order. Another U.K. man’s personal grow was busted last December when officers conducted a raid on his home and found 71 plants. Harrison’s lawyer, Kelleigh Lodge, said her client faced mental health challenges and was growing the plants for personal use.
