Ylber Trakalaci, 25, was caught red-handed when officers carried out a warrant at the house in Oundle Road on July 8.
Police searched the house where they found 115 cannabis plants spread across two upstairs rooms with a total street value of around £105,000. In addition to the plants, £750 in cash was also seized from the glovebox of a car parked outside the address.
Following the warrant, Trakalaci was arrested at the property on suspicion of production of cannabis and possession of criminal property.
Trakalaci, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to production of cannabis and possession of criminal property. He was sentenced to two years in prison at Cambridge Crown Court on Tuesday, September 29.
DC Helen Keighley, who investigated, said: “We all have a role to play in keeping our local areas safe from drug production and dealing. I would encourage anyone with suspicions to tell us.”
