Granny Arrested for Growing 200 Marijuana Plants using a Hydroponics System

A grandmother has received a two-year jail sentence for growing masses of cannabis at her Torquay home. 

Police found 200 cannabis plants and hydroponics equipment at 63-year-old Lynda Seager’s house, from which they estimated that she made around £100,000 over the last four years. 

Seager’s home was raided just 24 hours after authorities searched the home of her ex-husband Glenn in Sussex.

Seager admitted at Exeter Crown Court that she had grown cannabis for personal use, having originally planned to cultivate strawberries. 

Although she denied supplying cannabis, Seager was placed behind bars by Judge Erik Salomonsen over allegations that she was forwarding drugs onto her ex-husband. 

“We are very pleased with this result,” Det Con Richard Fuller of Devon and Cornwall Police told the BBC. “She was a very clever lady who tried to deceive the police about her involvement.”

Seager’s former husband is serving a three-year jail sentence for possession with intent to supply drugs.
