Tenants who gave fake names to agents sentenced after running cannabis farms in rental homes

Four men whose false information provided to letting agents allowed them to rent private homes have been found guilty of running large cannabis farms.

The four, who operate across Runcorn and Merseyside, rented a number of houses.

They provided false documents and false names to the agents.

They subsequently claimed they then sub-let the properties.

The four were Lee Williams, 35; Liam Miller, 24; John McDonough, 21; and Jason McDonough, 50.

All were given prison sentences at Liverpool Crown Court, of between 18 months and five years and three months, after pleading guilty to conspiracy in the production of cannabis.

    A few years in the Joint should set them straight.

    It’s high time they weeded out these budding entrepreneurs…

    Perhaps they wouldn’t have been in such a sticky situation if they’d been a little less green?

    Lucky they weren’t in Iran…they’d have probably got stoned.

      There is such a thing as too many puns, my man.
