A VIETNAMESE national found at a cannabis factory has been jailed for two years and faces possible deportation.
Van Hai Bui, 41, was found hiding by the back door of an address in Chatsworth Gardens, Harrow, where officers seized more than 500 plants earlier this year.
He was found guilty of production of the Class B drug and sentenced at Harrow Crown Court last week.
Sergeant Pete Law, of Harrow-on-the-Hill Safer Neighbourhoods Team (SNT), said: “Cannabis cultivation will not be tolerated in Harrow Borough.
“Harrow on the Hill SNT are currently working with owners of premises and residents on ways to identify suspected cannabis factories.
“I would urge anyone who suspects there might me a cannabis factory in their neighbourhood to contact Harrow Police on 03001231212.”
The raid came on the back of complaints from residents.
