A father and son have been given suspended prison sentences after a drugs raid at their Lowestoft flat.

Officers found 26 cannabis plants, which had been grown by 50-year-old Kevin Anderson, and also discovered herbal cannabis and amphetamine belonging to his 25-year-old son Rory Anderson, Ipswich Crown Court heard yesterday.

Robert Sadd, prosecuting, described the production of the plants by Kevin as “somewhat amateurish”.

He said Rory had been living in the two-bedroom flat with his father and he was found with a small amount of herbal cannabis and amphetamine.

Kevin, of Henham Road, Lowestoft, admitted producing cannabis. He was given a 32-week jail sentence suspended for 12 months and ordered to do 150 hours' unpaid work in the community and to pay £250 costs.

Rory, of the same address, admitted possessing herbal cannabis and am-phetamine and was also given a 32-week jail sentence suspended for 12 months and ordered to do 150 hours' unpaid work and to pay £250 costs.

Andrew Thompson, for Kevin, said his client used cannabis to ease the pain of rheumatism and hoped to save money by growing it himself.

Nicolas May, for Rory, said he no longer used amphetamine and was trying to reduce his use of cannabis.
