Today (August 29) at Cambridge Crown Court Gulbinas was sentenced to 30 months in prison, having pleaded guilty to producing cannabis at a previous hearing.
DC John Bimson said: "We are committed to tackling the production and supply of drugs by bringing people before the courts.
"Those involved in the illegal drugs trade take advantage of people's addictions and exploit the vulnerable to make their money.
"Drugs can also be linked to other crimes such as serious street-based violence and burglary, both of which are force priorities."
