A MAN has been jailed for 15 months after cannabis with a value of more than £12,500 was seized at a house in Earlsheaton.

Michael Newsome, 22, was convicted of possession with intent to supply after a cannabis factory containing more than 30 plants plus a sizeable quantity of cropped leaves was found at the address on Town Street.

Sgt Neil Willan of Dewsbury and Mirfield NPT said: “The information about this cannabis factory came from community sources and was corroborated by work carried out by our NPT officers. We would like to thank the public for their help.”
