Police swoop on elaborate set up

Drug Raid Uncovers 1,200 Cannabis Plants

Another WA rental property has been turned into a hydroponic cannabis farm, this time in Oldbury.

A police raid at the property last week has allegedly uncovered 1,217 cannabis plants and 198kg of drying cannabis head.

$10,000 was also seized as part of the sting, while a NSW man, 26, is in custody.

'Grow houses' were an issue for landlords and police last year, with 66 cases reported in the first half of the year.

That led to a special taskforce being set up, and raids on another 77 properties.

Anyone with something to report to police should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
