Police have seized cannabis plants they say are worth almost a million dollars from a home in a remote part of the Tweed. But so far no one has been arrested.
At about 5.45pm on Saturday (December 9), officers raided a home in Commissioners Creek.
They found a ‘sophisticated hydroponic set-up’, including 420 cannabis plants as well as ‘a significant amount’ of fertiliser and hydroponic equipment.
Investigators estimate the crop has a street value of about $990,000.
No arrests have been made in relation to the warrant and inquiries continue.
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to the incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
what are the cops snorting to come up with these plant values? $2500 per plant, or about a pound weight each. oh, that’s right, they weigh them before drying. after drying, they will weigh about a quarter of their weight, when picked. i guess $250,000 doesn’t make as a good a headline.
