Two men who ran a £60,000 cannabis farm from a Dundee house have been jailed.

Kim Bao Liu was caught growing cannabis on an "industrial scale" at the "sophisticated" cultivation in the city's Ladywell Avenue.

A trial at Dundee Sheriff Court was told that he and Chung Chan Wang then sold the drug on.

Sheriff Tom Hughes jailed Liu for three-and-a-half years and sentenced Wang to two years and four months in prison.

Liu, 55, was found guilty after a trial of producing and being concerned in the supply of cannabis last April.

Wang, 31, admitted being concerned in the supply of the drug.

'Difficulty and misery'

The court was told that police discovered Liu's DNA on equipment found in the house and that he had the front door key to the property.

Depute fiscal Eilidh Robertson told a jury: "The gas man identifies him as 'the man who lives in the house'.

"You may think that Kim Bao Liu is the unluckiest man in Dundee or you may think, as the Crown would invite you to, that all this evidence stacks up to one obvious, common sense conclusion."

Sheriff Hughes told the men: "This court considers this to be a serious case.

"The purpose you were both engaged in is illegal and for good reason because of the difficulty and misery that this causes to our communities."
