CANNABIS plants have been ordered to be destroyed after they were discovered in Hereford.

Carl Phillips entered a guilty plea to one count of producing cannabis, a controlled drug of class B when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford on June 4.

The court heard the 43-year-old had been caught producing cannabis in Hereford on October 30 last year.

He was found to have produced the class B controlled drug contrary to section four and schedule four of The Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.


Phillips, of Chestnut Drive in Hereford, was handed a 12-month community order with up to 15 days of rehabilitation activities.

He must also pay a fine of £50, costs of £85 and a £114 victim surcharge, while the cannabis was ordered to be destroyed. His equipment was seized by police.

His guilty plea was taken into account by magistrates when they decided on a sentence to impose.
