Surbiton cannabis farmer told to pay up or go back to prison
A gardener already serving time in prison for growing 51 cannabis plants in his garage has been ordered to pay £10,000 or face more time inside.

During his trial jurors heard he told officers he had just been house-sitting for his wife but later changed his story and said he had rented his garage out to be used as a storage facility.
There police found plants of up to 110cm in height.
A proceeds of crime confiscation hearing at Kingston Crown Court ordered him to pay back money he would have made or face a further six months in prison on Friday, January 10.
