Father-of-nine was hiding 101 cannabis plants below his garage


father-of-nine who set up a “cannabis factory” in a secret basement has been jailed.

Sayeed Hadi was found with 101 plants when police searched his garage and accessed a hatch to a space below.

Bristol Crown Court heard Hadi was attempting to pay off debts to banks and friends.

The 45-year-old, who was growing the illicit crop in Long Road, Mangotsfield, pleaded guilty to producing a Class B drug.


The recorder Mr Harris jailed him for 20 months. The cannabis will be destroyed.

He told Hadi: “A search revealed a cannabis factory.


“You told police you were in debt.


“You were going to pay back your debts.”

Tara Wolfe, prosecuting, said the value of the crop was put at between £20,000 to £60,000.


She said Hadi gave police a prepared statement in which he said was in debt, felt under pressure, panicked and decided to grow cannabis.

Neil Treharne, defending, told the court: “He deeply regrets his role.

“He deeply regrets letting his family and children down.”
