Jamie Waylett arrested For Cannabis

Harry Potter actor Jamie Waylett, 19, has been arrested on drug charges after police raided his home and discovered a marijuana farm in his bedroom worth £2,000.

Waylett was pulled over last week while driving in an Audi car in Westminster, central London, by police who believed he was behaving suspiciously.

Officers reportedly found eight bags of weed inside the vehicle, and Waylett and a friend, both 19, were arrested on suspicion of drug possession and taken to a nearby police station.

Waylett and another occupant of the car were reportedly held at the scene before police raided the Camden home he shares with his mother and three siblings.

The actor's home in Camden, north London, which he shares with his mother, Theresa, two brothers and a sister, was then raided and police allegedly seized ten mature cannabis plants valued at around £2,000.

The plants were allegedly growing under powerful hydroponic lights beside the actor's DJ decks and a PlayStation.

Waylett was arrested again on suspicion of producing a class B drug, a charge which carries up to 14 years imprisonment.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said Waylett's car was stopped at around 7pm on Thursday April 2 and his home was searched at around 10.40pm.

"Both men have been bailed to a date in July pending further inquiries and tests on the substances," he added.

A police officer had stated to The Sun: “It was a pretty significant find. We are concerned the drugs in the car were all bagged up and ready to go.

“Work now needs to be done to establish how far down the line we are towards dealing.”

This isn’t Jamie Waylett first run-in with the cops as he was was also accused of snorting cocaine in 2006.

A friend of fellow Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, Waylett will next appear in the soon to be released Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Waylett has appeared alongside Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in all six of the blockbuster Harry Potter films.

The latest instalment, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, is due out in July.
