The Vietnamese gang made hundreds of thousands of pounds using 16 rented homes across Lancashire and Liverpool for their sophisticated cannabis farm operation.

According to police, the cannabis seized from the homes had an estimated street value of over £800,000. Police also seized £200,000 in cash from gang members.

Hoai Nguyen, one of 16 convicted gang members, played a major role alongside gang leader Jack Nguyen, as they posed as a young couple with a newborn child.

Hoai Nguyen, 18, of Wellington Road, Manchester. Pleaded guilty to two counts of money laundering. Jailed for one year and six months.

The two gang members would prey on landlords by using false identities and fraudulent documents. They would pretend to be desperately in need of a place to live and used Nguyen's baby to take advantage of people's goodwill.

A total of sixteen members of the gang were jailed at Preston Crown Court on Tuesday December 11.
