A PORTISHEAD man is due in court later this month following the discovery of a cannabis factory at his home.
Police made the find when they carried out a warrant at his house in Brittan Place in December, when they also discovered evidence suggesting the set-up had at one time been considerably larger.
Now, 28-year-old Joey Hale has been charged and will appear in front of North Somerset magistrates on March 25.
Detective Adam Cox of the district targeting team said: “Cannabis factories have a clear link with serious and organised crime.
“People shouldn’t be misled that cannabis factories are a harmless money maker – they mean larger profit for the serious criminals behind them.”
