Police find 325 cannabis plants growing in NSW home

THREE men have spent the weekend locked up behind bars after police allegedly found more than 320 cannabis plants growing inside a house in the NSW Hunter Valley.

The men, aged 24, 33 and 41, were arrested at the Gentle Close home at Singleton Heights on Friday morning.

Police went to the address after receiving a tip off that the home was being used to cultivate cannabis.


When they entered the home, officers allegedly found 325 cannabis plants growing hydroponically inside.

A further two kilos of cannabis leaf was also seized from the home.

A crime scene was established and examined by specialist police.

The three men were all arrested and taken to Muswellbrook Police Station where they were each charged with knowingly taking part in the cultivation of a commercial quantity of cannabis.

The 41-year-old man was also charged with possessing a prohibited drug.

They were all refused bail and appeared in Wyong Bail Court on Saturday where they were again in custody until their next appearance on Monday.

Whilst I am against recreational drug use and abuse, I don’t understand why it’s illegal to possess and use it as a form of pain relief? It may actually help many people, but Australia the nanny state says NO.

Great work again police, really protecting society. A+, feel much safer knowing the hippies, artists, musicians, business people and those between will have a harder time relaxing. Plus this will help increase alcohol sales, right? Bit more domestic violence, fights on the streets, liver damage etc. All wonderful news. xx
