A COUNCIL tenant jailed for turning her Sheffield home into a cannabis factory has now been evicted from the property.

Police raided Michelle O’Brien’s home on Standish Road, Shirecliffe, in February last year and found 10 cannabis plants and equipment to produce the drug.

They also discovered evidence to suggest drug dealing, including a set of electronic scales, small plastic bags and an envelope with prices written on it.

O’Brien, aged 33, was convicted of producing cannabis at the property and jailed for 20 weeks at Sheffield Crown Court.

Sheffield Council and Sheffield Homes also took O’Brien to Sheffield County Court for breach of her tenancy over the drugs and allegations her family caused noise nuisance by playing loud music, shouting, swearing and allowing a dog to bark in the property. An eviction warrant was granted and O’Brien has now been kicked out of the property.
