£80,000 cannabis grow found in Nottinghamshire home

Two men have appeared in court after police discovered a cannabis factory growing inside a home.

Officers attended Bagshaw Street, Pleasley, near Mansfield, at around 12:20 pm on Saturday (16 December) on unrelated matters.

When officers forced entry to the property, two men climbed onto the roof and had to be persuaded to come down.

Up to 80 cannabis plants were found growing in a ground floor room and in the loft of the property.

Eset Gjoni, aged 29, and 24-year-old Shahin Gjoni, both of no fixed abode, have been charged with production of a Class B drug.

They appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday (18 December) and were remanded in custody until their next appearance at Nottingham Crown Court on 15 January 2024.

Sergeant David Wardle, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Cannabis grows can cause immeasurable harm to communities so we are always on the look out for them.

“This grow will now be dismantled and the drugs found will be destroyed.”
