Add a comment

A Tauranga man who admitted dealing cannabis after he was caught with a substantial growing operation at his home has been sentenced to 11 months home detention.

Guy William Dunlop, 42, who earlier admitted charges of possession of cannabis for supply, cultivates cannabis, and supplying cannabis, was also sentenced to 160 hours community work in Tauranga District Court yesterday.

When police searched Dunlop's address in September last year they found 3 containers of dried cannabis material in the freezer - the total weight was 180 grams and estimate to be worth $1500.

They also found scales, plastic bags, some seeds and a Greenhouse containing 62 seedlings, a P-pipe and two cannabis pipes.

Dunlop admitted he had previously supplied some cannabis to family and friends for a $250 an ounce but stated the rest was consumed for medicinal purposes.
