CANNABIS with a potential street value of more than $1 million has been seized during raids in Sydney.

The inside of both premises had undergone extensive modifications in order to cultivate cannabis indoors.


In one of the homes, officers allegedly located 173 cannabis plants; while in the second home, they allegedly found 182.

The combined estimated potential street value of the 355 plants is $1,046,000.
