(Newser) Harry Potter actor Jamie Waylett was arrested after police found nearly $3000 worth of marijuana plants in his bedroom, the Sun reports. Cops first pulled over Waylett, who plays bully Vincent Crabbe, and discovered eight bags of pot in his car. They then raided the house where he lives with his family. The actor—who was accused in 2006 of snorting cocaine—is due back in court in July.

“It was a pretty significant find. We are concerned the drugs in the car were all bagged up and ready to go,” said a police source. “Work now needs to be done to establish how far down the line we are towards dealing.”
