Four jailed for growing drugs

FOUR Chinese men have been jailed for four years for their involvement in a sophisticated cannabis grow house.

Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard that the men were living in a warehouse in Ballyboughal, Richardstown, Co Dublin, and looked after roughly 1,500 cannabis plants.

Guoyong Lin (35), En Xing Weng (38), Ming Liu (30) and Hua Ping Lin (27), all of whom are of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to cultivating cannabis at the warehouse on February 7, 2012.

Judge Martin Nolan sentenced the four men to four years in prison.
