Police seize 23 cannabis plants in Ainslie

ACT Policing has seized 23 cannabis plants following the execution of a warrant on a home in Ainslie yesterday (Friday July 25).

About 5.10pm yesterday, police attended the location after receiving a report of a possible grow house inside the home.

The owner of the home had gone to inspect his rental property when he observed a number of items indicating a hydroponic setup. The owner has called police and left the property.

Police conducted an external search of the property which confirmed the complainant’s observations and a crime scene was set up.

About 9.10pm, police executed a search warrant on the home and located a hydroponic setup within two rooms and 23 cannabis plants.

The plants were seized along with the hydroponic setup, including transformers, leads, irrigation and lighting.
