A MAN has been charged with producing cannabis after the discovery of a cannabis factory in a �360,000 house in Badwell Ash.

Quynh Quoc Doan, of no fixed abode, was arrested last Friday.

The 46-year-old was remanded in custody by police and appeared before magistrates in Ipswich on Saturday.

His next court appearance will be at Sudbury Magistrates Court next Monday.

Police raided the home-made cannabis factory in the plush five-bedroom house north of the A14 between Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds. They discovered about 600 cannabis plants at “various stages of growth” were found.

It is believed the detached home was used to cultivate the illegal drugs for at least the last two months.
