TWO men have been jailed for their involvement in the production of cannabis at a former social club in Blaenavon.
Mikeljan Dusha, 27, and Dylber Selimllari, 28, both of no fixed abode, appeared at Cardiff Crown Court on 27 September and pled guilty to producing a controlled drug of Class B – cannabis.
Officers in Torfaen arrested both men in August when carrying out warrant and during the search they uncovered almost 500 plants.
PC Danielle Lundrigan, officer in the case, said:
“This sentence evidences our commitment to tackling organised crime in our communities.
“Both men were involved in an organised and illegal enterprise operating in the heart of the Gwent valleys.
“We’ve disrupted the source of the operation and, in turn, protected our communities from drugs and associated criminality.
“If you have information or concerns about drug supply in your area, then get in touch with us immediately.
“As this case shows, evidence from the community is vital to us bringing people before the courts to face justice for the crimes they have committed.”
Dusha and Selimllari were each jailed for 27 months.
