Three members of a cannabis gang were jailed following a raid on a house in Camberley.

When officers raided the premises, they found the whole house had been transformed into a cannabis production set-up with foiled lined walls, lighting units, fans and large vents.

They also discovered and seized around 80 cannabis plants.

It was estimated that the operation, which had been running from January, could have potentially produced up to £100,000 worth of cannabis in a year.

Adam Kotarski, 41, of Nursery Road, Sunbury was jailed for one year; Adam Pawlowski, 50, of Fernlea Road, Mitcham was jailed for 21 months and Jozef Bialecki, 33, now of Marlas Road, Bridgend was jailed for 30 months.

Bernard Zegarek, 29, of Valroy Close, Camberley was charged and pleaded guilty to allowing his premises to be used for the production of cannabis.

Zegarek who sublet the premises to the other three was given an 18-month community order and ordered to perform 150 hours unpaid work. He was also required to pay £500 in legal costs.
