OH BROTHER! Duo jailed for role in cannabis factory with potential £3.5 million yield



BRADFORD brothers have been jailed for helping to set up a cannabis factory which could have flooded a city with £3.5 million of the drug.

A court heard that the pair were traced via mobile phones and a van which visited the illegal unit in Nottingham - as well as going to London to buy specialist electrical equipment.

Prison terms of five years and six months were imposed on Mohammed Anwar, 33, and Mohammed Imran, 38, both of St George’s Rise, Little Horton, Bradford. They admitted conspiring to produce cannabis in Nottingham between June 1 and August 6 last year.



Nottingham Crown Court heard that seven Vietnamese men worked at the cannabis factory which had been set up in the top two floors of a former paper mill within a mile of the city centre.

It was only discovered when the owner decided to carry out safety checks after the Grenfell Tower tragedy. He was unable to enter because a crime gang had blocked the stairs and controlled the lift.

After the Vietnamese team escaped across nearby roofs, police broke in to find 4,049 cannabis plants.

QC Gregory Dickinson, Nottingham’s most senior judge, said: “This cannabis would be sold in the city, in this county and beyond.

“Barely a week goes by where this court and others deal with the effects of the use of cannabis, barely a week where I read a report of some young defendant who suffers from anxiety, depression, insomnia or paranoia because of psychotic substances. High strength cannabis is having a profound effect on the mental health of many people and that is hugely disturbing. It should be a matter of great concern.”
