Vietnamese national gets suspended sentence

A man who converted a rented house into a cannabis growing factory has been given a suspended sentence on condition that he leave the country immediately.

Vietnamese national Thang Nguyen (32),with an address at Swords Road, Santry has been on remand in prison pending sentence for the last 11 months after a warrant was issued for his arrest when he failed to appear at a previous court hearing.

“We have enough of our home grown criminals,” Judge Frank O’Donnell commented when he sentenced Nguyen for what he described as “a very sophisticated offence”.
