Harry Potter star 'busted with dope farm'

    A teenage Harry Potter star is facing jail after police reportedly found cannabis growing in his bedroom.

    Jamie Waylett, who has played Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe in six films, was allegedly caught with eight bags of marijuana in his car after a police tip-off.

    Drug squad officers then raided the 19-year-old's parent's home to allegedly discover ten mature plants in his bedroom.

    The dope, which was reportedly growing under hydroponic lights alongside the teen's PlayStation and DJ decks, was valued at about $4100, The Sun reports.

    Waylett and a friend riding in his Audi, also 19, were held on suspicion of possession and production of a Class B drug.

    If convicted, the offences carry a maximum jail term of five and 14 years.

    It's not the first time the London actor has been linked to illegal substances.

    In 2006, a video obtained by a British newspaper allegedly showed Waylett snorting cocaine.

    He also reportedly bragged about getting high at a Harry Potter premiere and invited strippers back to his flat.

    Both teenagers were bailed until July pending further enquiries.

    He's a teenage boy. He did what any teenage boy would do with a load of cash spent it on decks, playstation, drugs, and hookers. Serves him right for bullying Harry.

    At least he won't get beaten up much in jail as he looks like a gang leader.

    That guy's gotta have the world's worst facial hair. Not only does he have a filthy little tash that looks like a patch of dirt, he also seems to have this misplaced goatie that sits on his fat neck rather than his chin. Ha, felt I had to comment. Way to kick a guy when he's down.

    Haha. As a weed and self confessed Harry Potter fan, I love the randomness of this story.

    It would have been very interesting if it was one of the big three who got caught. I can see the headline - "New Harry Potter Film Cancelled - Ginger One Caught Growing Drugs!" :laugh:.

    It's not hard to see how he could have thought he was above getting caught, with all the news stories and rumours about celebrities are drugs. It would be very easy for someone in his position to get an exaggerated sense of self-importance.

    Make of that what you will...

    Haha :laugh:, that really made my day.

    This guy will probably lose his job, and maybe chances of getting more in the future. If one of the big three was caught though, they would be far too important to sack, and the publicity would probably improve attitudes towards drugs (though it could just make attitutes about celebrity worse).
