Harry Potter Actor Held For Growing Cannabis

A star of the Harry Potter films has been arrested after cannabis was allegedly found in his car and at his mother's home.

Jamie Waylett, 19, who played Hogwarts pupil Vincent Crabbe, was held after being stopped by officers in Westminster, central London.



A search of his Audi car allegedly revealed eight bags of suspected cannabis.

The actor, who appeared as a tubby villain in all six of the smash hit Harry Potter films, and a 19-year-old friend were taken to a nearby police station.

After questioning, a team of officers raided his mother's three-storey home in Camden, north London, several hours later.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said they discovered a cannabis farm, including plants and expensive cultivation equipment.

It is understood police seized at least 10 mature cannabis plants valued at about £2,000, which were growing alongside the young star's DJ equipment and a games console.

The spokesman said: "We stopped a vehicle at 7pm on Thursday April 2, in Lodge Road, NW8.

"Officers discovered a quantity of around eight bags of what we believe to be cannabis in the vehicle.

"The two occupants of the car, both 19-year-old men, were arrested and taken to a central London police station.

"While they were there, at 10.40pm on the same evening, we attended an address in Messina Avenue, NW6.

"Officers found a number of plants believed to be cannabis and equipment for the cultivation of plants.

"Both men have been bailed until a date in July pending further inquiries while we await tests on the substances and plants recovered."

According to Home Office guidelines, the maximum punishment for cannabis production is 14 years in jail.

Those found guilty of possession of the class B drug can face up to five years.

So you're saying the guy isn't acting, he really is a potter.

Thank goodness Britain has taken care of all the important crimes. This should make the island all safe now.
