Two men who ran a sophisticated cannabis factory in Blackburn have been jailed today at Preston Crown Court.

Tan Dang, 39 and Bay Nguyen, 36, both of no fixed abode, ran a sophisticated operation at a house they rented on Woodbine Road, using thousands of pounds worth of equipment to grow the plants.

Police discovered the 250 plants worth an estimated £100,000 in the upstairs bedroom at the address on 12 June 2012 after a number of complaints from the local community.

DI Mark Winstanley said: “People who cultivate cannabis need to know they will be caught and will more than likely face a lengthy prison sentence.
