Some 45 cannabis plants were found at the 50-year-old woman’s house over the weekend.
Police were alerted to the area after a neighbour rang to say she had seen two youths in hoodies climb over the garden wall.
The thieves were caught red handed coming from the woman’s house and were in possession of cannabis.
When police interviewed the victim of the burglary, they also found the cannabis plants.
The 50-year-old admitted to growing the plant for personal use, “to take care of her own treatment [for illnesses].”
