Girlfriend pleads guilty to allowing cannabis at home

The long-term girlfriend of a Smith's Wood man who was sent down for growing cannabis pleaded guilty on Wednesday to permitting the production of the class C drug in her home

The long-term girlfriend of a Smith's Wood man who was sent down for growing cannabis pleaded guilty on Wednesday to permitting the production of the class C drug in her home.

Sherie Haydon, 37, from Severn Close admitted to the offence just weeks after her partner Scott Collins was sentenced.

Police discovered 28 mature cannabis plants in a bedroom at the north Solihull home after British Gas workers had alerted them following an inspection of suspected abstraction of electricity.

Also seized were eight day lights, plastic sheeting, plant food and a hydro-ponic system.

Mr McCann, prosecuting said Ms Haydon admitted to the offence although she didn't know how many plants were in the bedroom as she had no access to the room as it was always locked.

He also went on to say that it was a very professional operation.

"It was a very professional and organised set-up. A lot of work must have gone on to install it."

Mr Nijar, defending, said that he hoped all options would be considered.

As a result Magistrate Mrs Ellams adjourned the sentence until November 6 for the probation service to prepare pre-sentence reports.

"We are keeping the options open, however we are not ruling out custody in this case," added Mrs Ellams.
