Twenty-eight-year-old Mohamed Jalloh, who was serving an 8-year sentence for supplying Class A drugs, succeeded in convincing jail staff that his cannabis crop was tomato plants. The Sun reports that Jalloh grew his plants for at least five months and that prison officers and bosses at Verne Prison admired his botanical skills.
Jalloh’s agricultural project came to an end when a jealous prisoner reported him to authorities.
According to one source:
You could see the plants from the grounds as his cell looks on to the education department and communal outside area. They were on show for the world to see.
