A man has been jailed after officers discovered cannabis plants worth over £200,000 in a property in Rugeley in 2020.
Steven Morgan, 56, of Whetstone Lane, Aldridge, was sentenced to 27 months behind bars at Stafford Crown Court on Thursday (18 August) for producing class B drugs.
Morgan had previously denied the offences but later changed his plea to guilty prior to sentencing.
The court heard how officers attended a premises off New Road, Rugeley, on 24 July 2020.
On arrival at the premises, officers found over more than 380 cannabis plants, worth a total of £216,000.
The plants, along with two mobile phones, were seized by officers.
Morgan was detained and later charged.
PC Luke Ashford, of the Lichfield Local Policing Team, said: “I am pleased that Morgan admitted his offending and that the judge saw fit to deliver a custodial sentence.
“We will continue to do all we can to disrupt the drugs supply in Rugeley to protect our communities from drug-related criminality.”
