A man has appeared in court charged in connection with the discovery of a cannabis factory in a seaside Suffolk town.
Ashley Goodridge has been charged with producing a controlled drug of class B and diverting electricity to the value of £394.56.
The 32-year-old denied both charges and will face trial later in the year.
His arrest followed the discovery of a cannabis factory containing 141 plants, hydroponic equipment and associated paraphernalia with an estimated total value of about £100,000.
Police executed a warrant at a flat in Station Road, Southwold, on the morning of Wednesday, March 13.
