Cannabis farmer Alexander Cameron was jailed for six years in 2010 after police found a commercial operation to cultivate the drug at disused kennels at his remote farm.

Cameron, 66, who has since been freed from prison, was pursued by the Crown under proceeds of legislation following his conviction.
