Police seized skunk cannabis from a house in Leeds after they received a 999 call reporting armed men outside of the property.

A court heard armed officers went to the house on Conway Avenue, Harehills, but found no signs of a disturbance.

Police spoke to a man standing on the front doorstep and he told them he was there to buy some tobacco.

The defendant pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis with intent to supply at a hearing in September this year.

He appeared in court for sentence via a video link from HMP Durham.

Kedar was given an 18-week prison sentence but was told he would be released due to the amount of time he has already spent in custody.
