Convicted drug grower told to pay up
A CONVICTED Weston cannabis producer has been ordered to pay �1,475 to the courts.
Colin Spence, of Sunnyside Road, was handed a confiscation order by a judge at Bristol Crown Court last week.
He was given six months to pay up after investigations revealed that he had benefited from criminal conduct.
If he fails to pay, he faces a further 35 days behind bars and will still have to find the money to pay the order.
Spence was sentenced to 18 months in prison in January, having pleaded guilty to producing cannabis and abstracting and/or using electricity without authority.
