An ILKESTON man has been jailed for producing cannabis at his house – the second time he has been convicted of the offence in just over a year.
Officers were called to Ross Draper’s home on Canal Street, Ilkeston, on May 17, after reports of a disturbance.
When they went into the house they found cannabis plants growing inside.
Draper, 32, was arrested and charged with production of a class B drug.
He pleaded guilty to the offence at Derby Crown Court and was sentenced to a total of 18 months in prison at a hearing on August 17 2011.
A spokesman for Derbyshire police said: “Draper was handed a 10 month sentence for the cannabis production and previous suspended sentence orders for cannabis production, possession with intent to supply a class B drug and burglary were all activated, meaning the total sentence passed was 18 months.”
