Three men who were arrested during a cannabis factory raid were among those jailed in September.

This month saw three men sentenced at St Alban's Crown Court as well as a dismissal of a police officer already serving a prison sentence.

We created a list of men who have been sentenced to time behind bars to highlight the work of both Hertfordshire Constabulary and the justice system in the county.

Here is the run down of men who are now behind bars.

Three men jailed

Andi Hasko, 32, Maringen Hasko, 25 and Redion Balla, 26, were found inside the property in Newlands Avenue, Radlett, after police executed a warrant at the address on April 30, 2020.

Hertfordshire Constabulary said it found almost 700 plants inside the house and that a large amount of cash was seized as well.

The three men were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the production of a controlled drug (Class B - cannabis).

They were found guilty at St Albans Crown Court on September 15 and were sentenced to three years in prison each.

Acting inspector for the operational support group Jim Rounce said: "We often see large houses being rented to farm cannabis and so I would urge people to look out for the typical signs and contact police if they have any suspicions.

"Things to look out for are curtains permanently drawn and windows closed, people coming and going from the address at odd times of the day and night, the smell of cannabis, the noise of fans and condensation of windows."

Nicholas Musto

Musto, 51, who worked for Hertfordshire Constabulary for 25 years is currently serving a prison sentence after pleading guilty to misconduct in public office.

He was dismissed in his absence following a special case hearing on September 21, chaired by Chief Constable Charlie Hall.

The charges related to an inappropriate relationship the officer had with a vulnerable victim of crime he came in contact with through his operational police work.

It was investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) following a voluntary referral from Hertfordshire Constabulary in October 2018.

During the investigation it was found that Musto had lied about the nature of his relationship with the victim when concerns were previously investigated in 2013.

He was sentenced to 15 months in prison on July 17.
