Five charged after £1 million cannabis grow found across multiple rooms in St Ann’s

Police investigating the discovery of an industrial-sized cannabis grow have charged multiple suspects.

Officers were called to an address in Lowdham Street, St Ann’s, shortly after 5am on Tuesday (12 July) morning after reports of a break-in.

Inside they discovered more than 1,100 plants spread across multiple rooms in the property.

Three men have now been charged with the production of cannabis.

They are: Nicholas Morris, aged 55, of no fixed abode; Petr Muzic, aged 40, of Manor Street, Sneinton; Milan Brich, aged 39, of Lowdham Street, St Ann’s.

All appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday. Morris was released on bail and the other two men were remanded into custody.

Two 17-year-old boys have also been charged with the same offence.

They appeared in court the following day and were remanded.

The plants have been taken away and destroyed.

Detective Inspector Jon Kerry, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are working every day to disrupt the trade in illegal drugs and regularly carry out proactive warrants at addresses of interest.

“I am pleased we have now brought charges in this case and our investigation continues.”

Cannabis plants are estimated to yield £100 per plant at street values.
