A man who grew cannabis worth tens of thousands of pounds in his East Cambridgeshire home has been sentenced.
The cannabis factory was discovered at the home of Mark Andrews, of High Street, Cheveley, on February 26.
Officers visited the house just after 11pm following concerns about his wellbeing. As they arrived, they saw Andrews in his front garden attempting to start a chainsaw.
As Andrews saw police he went back into his house but was called back outside by officers, leaving the chainsaw indoors.
Officers noticed Andrews was ‘highly intoxicated’ or under the influence of drugs. He struggled to lock his front door and was keen for officers not to enter his house, Cambridge Crown Court heard.
He told police he was “worried about his baby”. Officers entered the house
