British police accidentally discovered a secret cannabis farm when they kicked down the wrong door.

Cops were looking for a female illegal immigrant when they raided the house – and instead stumbled across $ 120,000 worth of plants.

Armed police and immigration officers were stunned to discover the haul after breaking into the house in Pembroke Dock, Wales.

Instead, Vietnamese-born Giap Din Tran, 41, was “startled” when he was busted looking after his home-made cannabis plantation.

He had been growing 222 cannabis plants for two years after smuggling himself into the UK, reported Mirror Online.

Tran was jailed for 12 months after pleading guilty to growing cannabis at Swansea Crown Court.

Judge Paul Thomas said that Tran was expected to be deported to Vietnam before he completes his sentence.
