Genjan Bardhoku, aged 28, Amarildo Jahaj, aged 26, Aristid Kola, aged 26, Albion Laki, aged 24, Yurido Racrku, aged 23, and Ari Sinanaj, aged 32, all of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to being concerned in the production of a controlled class B drug – cannabis.
They were each sentenced to a year in prison at Aylesbury Crown Court on Tuesday (1/3) and will be deported at the conclusion of their sentences.
The sentence relates to a large scale cannabis factory found in Burners Lane, Milton Keynes on 27 January this year.
Officers forced entry to a property after obtaining a warrant due to intelligence surrounding it.
They found between 30kg and 40kg of cannabis and all equipment needed for a cannabis factory.
The six men fled the property but were arrested shortly after.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Tania Wasilewski-Norman, part of the Drugs Task Force said: “Thames Valley Police take all drugs offences seriously and will endeavour to prosecute those that commit such offences.
“The impact of drugs is a huge burden on the wider public and will often lead to further offences being committed.
“We aim to make the Thames Valley a hostile area for drug cultivation and dealing and will work hard to bring offenders to justice.
“We continue to need the support of the public in this, and we would ask them to report any information that they have about drug dealing.
“This can be shared with Thames Valley Police on our website or by calling 101.
“You can also report information anonymously by calling independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
