A SUSPECTED cannabis farmer has appeared in court after more than 400 plants were found at a house.

The cannabis plants were found in Otto Terrace, Thornhill.

No application for bail was made. District Judge Steve Earl remanded Thans in custody until Monday.

A 43-year-old man, who was also arrested on suspicion of producing a controlled drug, has been released on police bail.
