Faces of men who grew cannabis in village home

Pictures of three men who were jailed for growing potentially up to £55,000 worth of cannabis in a Wilford home have been released by police.

Simas Janauskas, Vytautus Liukaitis and Evaldas Nemcivcius all appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday (27 July).

A total of 66 cannabis plants were found at the house on Main Road, which has an estimated potential yield of £55,440.

The electrical supply had been bypassed and cannabis growing equipment was found in the rooms which had been converted to cultivate the drug.

All three men went on to plead guilty to producing cannabis.

Nemcivcius, 21, of Main Road, Wilford, was locked up for seven months. Janauskas, 24, and Liukaitis, 23, both of no fixed address, were jailed for six months and five months respectively.

Police Constable Gail Collins of Nottinghamshire Police, who led the investigation, said: “Drug-related crime has a significant impact on the people who live in our communities and we are committed to tackling it head on and taking positive action.

“Consequently we regularly conduct proactive intelligence-led raids on local properties and will continue to do everything we can to disrupt the supply of illegal drugs including executing further warrants.

“We will continue to work closely with our partners to address this issue and to improve our neighbourhoods together. I would also urge anyone with information about local drug-related crime or antisocial behaviour to contact us and let us know.”
