Huge cannabis nursery found in suburban house

An innocent Brisbane home has been secretly used as a large-scale cannabis nursery housing about $1 million worth of the drug.

Officers stormed the Durack property this morning after an anonymous tip-off.

When they broke through the front door, they discovered a sophisticated network of rooms housing an array of marijuana plants.


Brisbane Regional Crime Command Acting Superintendent Geoff Sheldon said young plants were kept separate in a nursery, while developing and mature plants also had their own rooms.

Occupants had installed automatic watering systems and run piping through the roof to maintain their high-quality crop.

Up to 400 power leads were also weaved throughout the house.

All up, police say about $1 million worth of cannabis was housed within the rental property.
