A man has been jailed for growing cannabis in his Aberdeen flat.
Marek Nakata, 31, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday having previously pled guilty to producing and being concerned in the supply of cannabis at an address on Tullos Crescent on June 22 last year.
Fiscal depute Jamie Dunbar told the court an individual from a property management company had attended to carry out an inspection but contacted police after seeing “items”.
A drug search warrant was obtained and officers discovered jars of cannabis worth £7,600 and a tent containing cannabis plants with a potential value of up to £9,900 within the bedrooms.
Defence agent David Sutherland said his client no longer used the drug and asked for a community payback order to be imposed instead of custody.
Sheriff Philip Mann sentenced Nakata, of Great Northern Road, Aberdeen, to six months in jail.
He added: “This is a very serious offence. The value of the drugs is significant.”
