Cannabis plants worth up to £898,000 were discovered at a Newport nightclub with the operation believed to be linked to an organized crime gang. More than 1000 plants were discovered on the property with hundreds of pieces of equipment also found. Sardi Hasani, 30, and Indrit Neziri, 25, were found working in the cannabis plant at Neon nightclub in Clarence Place on December 29 last year. Police raided the nightclub on a warrant issued under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

A hearing at Cardiff Crown Court on Wednesday heard that both defendants were arrested at the factory which had eight grow rooms. Prosecutor Gareth James said there were a total of 1,361 cannabis plants with 151 lights, 145 transformers, 66 fans and eight fan units. The cannabis plants were in various stages of growth, some were immature and some were in the flowering stage. James said the evidence supports a "continuous cultivation of produce" and a "sophisticated organization" designed to produce significant quantities of cannabis that is likely to be part of an organized crime gang operation.

Both defendants were interviewed and told police they had come to the UK from Albania and had debts to pay. They said they were involved with "unpleasant characters" who threatened to harm them and their families. Hasani and Neziri, both of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to producing cannabis. Judge Christopher Vosper KC sentenced Hassan and Nezir to 36 weeks each. He told the defendant they would likely be held in immigration detention after their release, but that was a matter for the Home Office.
