When entry was made into the house, elaborate hydroponic set ups were located along with a significant amount of cannabis material. Due to the amount of drugs located, Detectives from Narrogin became involved.
In all, over 3kg of cannabis and 19 plants were seized along with lighting, ventilation and irrigation equipment. The amount seized is deemed to be a trafficable amount and carries very heavy penalties on conviction.
A 46yr old male was charged with the serious offences of Cultivating and Possessing cannabis with intent to sell or supply, and appeared in the Perth Magistrates Court the following day.
