Couple sentenced for growing cannabis

A MAN has been jailed for 20 months after more than 120 cannabis plants were found in a garage in Benson.

Jeffrey Hunt, 43, was arrested along with long-term partner Lisa Crook following a police raid on the house in Westfield Road in August last year.

The plants were concealed behind a false wall in the garage and had a street value estimated to be £42,500.

Hunt, who shared the house with Crook but has since moved out, pleaded guilty to production of a Class B drug and was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Friday.

He was also handed a further one month in prison for possession of a Class A drug after cocaine was found on a table in the house.
