He pleaded guilty to producing a class B drug at Cambridge Crown Court today (16 May) and was sentenced to 12 months in a young offenders institute. He will then face deportation.

DC Ashley Byrne said: “We will continue to put those involved in the production and supply of drugs in the county before the courts and I hope today’s result will serve as a deterrent to others.”
