A Newmarket man who filled his home with cannabis plants worth nearly £400,000 in a “sophisticated operation” has been jailed for a year.
Ilir Aga, of Fordham Road, was arrested in April after officers found his four bedroom house, as well as two outbuildings, packed with plants.
The 37-year-old pleaded guilty to producing a class B drug at Cambridge Crown Court last Thursday before being sentenced to a year in prison.
Pc Alan Tregilgas said: "This was a sophisticated operation that would have put a lot of cannabis on the streets.
"I am pleased we have managed to disrupt this and that Aga has been jailed.
"I hope this sends a clear message that we will work hard to find and destroy cannabis farms and put the people behind them before the courts."
