POLICE have destroyed more than 250 cannabis plants found during a raid on a rental property in Sydney’s Inner West.

Acting on a tip-off from the public, officers executed a search warrant at the rental home on Kanoona Avenue in Homebush on Friday.

During a search of the property, police allegedly uncovered 256 cannabis plants worth an estimated $700,000 growing in a sophisticated hydroponic set-up.
