A man who was caught with cannabis worth up to £35,000 in his home has been jailed for nine months.
Officers discovered 41 plants in two tents in a bedroom at Ronald Naidoo’s home in Wootton Field, Gamlingay, after carrying out a warrant on September 26 last year.
Naidoo, 29, was on holiday at the time but a man who was at the property and said he was house-sitting was arrested.
However, Naidoo and his wife arrived home while officers were still at the property and both were arrested.
Analysis of the cannabis determined the plants had a potential value of between £11,480 and £34,850.
