Police arrested a 41-year-old woman after finding 12 cannabis plants in her bedroom.

Spalding officers attended the home of Angela Lloyd, of Anfield Road in Long Sutton, on an unrelated matter - but found the plants under cultivation, a court has heard.

Lloyd admitted to cultivating the plants when she appeared before District Judge Peter Veits at Boston Magistrates Court today (Wednesday).

Prosecuting, Lou Johnson said police officers went to Lloyd's home and, as part of a separate enquiry, searched her home. They found 12 cannabis plants being cultivated under a black tent and lighting in an upstairs bedroom.

After being arrested, she said Lloyd told officers she was the 'gardener' and played no part in the supply of the drug.

Mitigating, Daven Naghen said Lloyd suffered from a number of mental health problems and had been self medicating with cannabis.

He added that she had been put under pressure to set up a grow in her home, look after them and water them in return for some cannabis for herself.

He said she had had a 'very limited role' and had 'very little influence' on those above her.

He said she had problems with debt and would benefit from help from the Probation Service.

After receiving a report from the Probation Service, the judge ordered Lloyd to undergo a 12 month community order with 20 rehabilitation days. She was also ordered to pay a total of £180 in court costs and charges.
