An ex-GMP police officer who was operating a cannabis farm from his home has been jailed.
Hemayat Enayat from Salford also accessed police systems for the benefit of the gang. In November 2015, Greater Manchester Police’s Anti-Corruption Unit launched an investigation into Enayat, who was a PC on the Trafford Division, after concerns into his activities came to light. In February officers executed warrants in Salford, Moss Side, and South Manchester and seized cannabis with a street value of £26,000, cash, hydroponic growing equipment and drug dealing paraphernalia.
The court heard how Enayat and a number of other men had been cultivating the cannabis in his house with the intention of selling it for a large profit.
Hemayat Enayat, Salford, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to produce cannabis and conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office at an earlier hearing. He was sentenced to four years in prison.
Rico Richards, Dean Barker and Demaine Cousins all from Moss Side were jailed for their part in the crime. Rudi Chuwen was ordered to do 180 hours of unpaid community work.
