A 61-year-old man, who was arrested following a large drug bust named Operation Canary, has been sent to jail.

Frank Mathew Tainton appeared before Justice John Fogerty in the High Court at Invercargill today for sentence conspiring to sell cannabis to people of or over the age of 18 and possessing cannabis for supply.

He was sentenced to two years' and nine months jail and an order was made for the forfeiture of his vehicle.

No verbal submissions were made yesterday by defence lawyer Mike Newell or crown lawyer Sarah McKenzie.
