A man accused of being involved in a cannabis factory containing drugs worth £100,000 at a farm in St Michael’s has made his first appearance at court.
Christopher Reuben, a 28-year-old chef, of Devonshire Road, Chorley, is charged with being concerned in the production of 225 cannabis plants.
The offences are alleged to have taken place at Horrocks Farm on January 26 last year.
Ian Mutch, prosecuting, opposed bail for Reuben. Tim Vickers, defending, said his client pleaded not guilty to the offence and asked for bail.
Reuben was bailed to appear at Preston Crown Court on April 24 by District Judge Pamela Baldwin sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.
He must surrender his passport and report three times a week to police as conditions of his bail.
