£84k cannabis farm uncovered in Conwy house fire

  • 8-5-2015

More than 100 cannabis plants were uncovered when firefighters were called to a Conwy house fire, a court has heard.

Electrical equipment used to grow cannabis worth up to £84,000 sparked a blaze at the Towyn home of Duncan Frazer.

Frazer, 51, of Bryn Road, later admitted cannabis production.

He was given a 14-month jail term, suspended for two years, at Mold Crown Court on Tuesday.

Judge David Hale rejected the contracts manager's claim the drugs haul was for his own use, branding it "fatuous in the extreme".

"This is not a one-man band doing it for his own smoke," he added.

The court heard the plants could have had a street value of between £28,000 and £84,000.
