Three men sentenced for cannabis production

Three men were today sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court after they pleaded guilty to the production of cannabis.

The convictions follow a warrant, executed earlier this year in March, where we uncovered a large scale cannabis grow in Boston.

The sheer scale of this grow, housed within a 50K square foot unit, required the tireless efforts of a large number of staff to dismantle and investigate the industrial operation. It was, by far, the largest cannabis grow the County had seen.

Alfred Alla, 21, Xhemal Derdi, 24, and Ismail Elezi, 26, all of no fixed address, were each sentenced to three years and three months in prison for their role in producing the cannabis. 

Anyone who has information or suspicions concerning illegal drugs cultivation can call us on 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
