Southampton Man Jailed For Growing Cannabis

A man from Southampton has been jailed for three month after being charged with growing more than 100 cannabis plants.

Richard Turner, 43, from Warren Crescent was charged last night (Wednesday, 2nd February) by officers following the discovery of 100 plants last August in a house in Warren Crescent and a further four when police were called to another incident near his home on Monday, January 31.

He pleaded guilty at Southampton Magistrates Court to two charges of cultivating cannabis and was given a three month jail sentence.

Detective Constable Jonny Hyland from Shirley CID said: “Swift justice was handed out to Mr Turner. This should bring home to anyone involved in unlawful drugs that police and the courts won’t tolerate these crimes in Hampshire”
