Sheffield Magistrates’ Court – sitting at the Sheffield Crown Court building – heard on Thursday, June 11, how Flamur Zaimi, aged 39, and Soni Zogu, aged 28, allegedly produced the class B controlled drug at a property on Tune Street, at Worsbrough Common, Barnsley.

Kirsty Pearson, prosecuting, said the Crown Prosecution Service argues the case is not suitable for a summary trial at magistrates’ court and will need to be committed to crown court due to the seriousness of the alleged offence.

She claimed the case involves an alleged large scale production for commercial use.
