A man jumped from a first-floor window to avoid arrest when police raided a cannabis factory.

Cambridgeshire police has released a video of the moment his house was raided and the man was filmed as he jumped into the arms of waiting police officers. The man was not injured.

Eduart Mrishaj, 32, leapt out the bathroom window of his home in Essendyke, Bretton, on the morning of 26 January this year, as police forced their way into the house.

The Neighbourhood Support Team executed the warrant just before 8am, when Mrishaj tried to escape via the back door but came face-to-face with police officers who were blocking the exit.

He ran upstairs and climbed out a bathroom window as officers were entering the house, but was caught and detained as he landed in the front garden.

Inside the house, officers found cannabis plants worth up to £177,240 growing in four different rooms.

Mrishaj appeared at Peterborough Crown Court yesterday afternoon (30 March) where he was sentenced to 20 weeks in prison after previously admitting producing cannabis.

Detective Constable Emily Richardson, who investigated, said: “Mrishaj knew he was in trouble as soon as he heard police forcing entry to his home and in a desperate attempt to avoid arrest, he jumped from a first-floor window but thankfully didn’t injure himself.

“Cannabis cultivation is often linked to organised crime groups and further criminality such as money laundering, violence and exploitation, therefore I would urge members of the public to report any concerns about cannabis cultivation to us.”
