Don’t have a domestic in your grow house

By 24 May 2011 197

ACT Policing has arrested and charged a 24-year-old Griffith man after finding a quantity of cannabis plants in his house last night (Monday, May 23).

Police were called to the house around 9pm after reports of a possible disturbance. At the house, police spoke to the man who advised that he was the only person in the house.

Officers entered the house and located a hydroponic system and nine large cannabis plants growing in a bedroom.

The resident, who until that time had been assisting police with their investigation, then lunged at an officer with a syringe. The man was escorted from the house where a violent scuffle took place with the man attempting to kick and head-butt officers.

The man was conveyed to the ACT Watch House and will face the ACT Magistrates Court later today after being charged with cultivating a trafficable quantity of cannabis for sale, and obstructing a territory public official (knowingly).

I want to know why there are so many people using government houses to grow dope and they just seem to get away with it? Aparently via satelite camera they can pick up the extra IR heat through a roof from hydroponic lamps. Not sure if that only works if the gear is in the attack though.

Why do you assume the media is CORRECT? Why do you assume it was a DOMESTIC? This guy has a mental illness and was in his own home smashing his own stuff up not hurting anybody else, when some nosey fkr called Police on him…….he didn’t allow Police in so they pulled their domestic violence card (which by the way, they never use in REAL domestic violence incidents) and proceeded to enter HIS own private home. As for the mega hydroponic set up LOL LOL LOL……I’m sorry but I think they may have needed to stroke their own…..errrr egos and claim a big bust (I suppose being a Police Officer in Canberra would require spicing up). As for the syringe, my friend was trying to attack HIMSELF not THEM. So Police decided to lock him up instead of seeking the treatment that he requires. Great outcome hey. I’m sure tax payers will want to cover court costs & jail costs and he will come out of jail a CURED MAN!

I can’t believe the ARSEUMPTIONS you are making! How do you know this person lives in a government house? And if all these people are growing dope in government houses AND getting away with it, then they would be able to afford their OWN homes :)

I’d like to start off by saying to ALL OF YOU (except Violet) that you have BREACHED the site rules and guidelines. As not only are your comments NEGATIVE, they shed no new light or information on the TOPIC at hand! I’d also like to add, that the person in question works 6 days p/w full time while managing severe mental health issues. And whilst i UNDERSTAND it’s a crime to cultivate plants, it hasn’t even come close to one of Canberra’s biggest drug busts. So with out justifying the person in question any further, why don’t you all take your UN-EDUCATED, UN-WANTED OPINIONS ELSEWHERE and STICK THEM UP WHERE THE SUN DON’T SHINE….

It’s always the COPS or the VICTIMS fault to the criminals mates or loved ones isn’t it? Many threads on this forum to prove that one!

Oh the big bad Police made him/her do it! He/she was just defending himself/herself!

Loyalty is great but if you actually really cared for the alleged offender, you would stop blaming everyone else for his mistakes to let him know that he screwed up and shouldn’t try to justify and repeat the criminal behavour again.

Because helicopters with infra-red spy cameras that snoop into people’s homes are always a great use of scarce resources.

I believe an English family was recently raided after one of their cameras mistook the heater on a 6 year old kid’s gerbil cage as evidence of a hydro grow-op.

my mistake… your post mentioned spy satellites, not helicopters… possibly even more Orwellian

I would like to say that your comment was negative and shed no new light on the case aside from he works 6 days a week.

P.S. The sun does not shine on this site, thats whey the comments are here. Cheer up and approach this from a different angle. You obviously know more so why not give us your side of the story?

Should the police have just left him home alone and not bothered him? Should they have just let him harm himself and wait till the problem goes away by itself?

I really think they are in a no win situation and probably did their best considering the circumstances.

of note – It didn’t happen in Charnwood, it happened in Griffith!!!

If your friend really does work 6 days per week full time, then his employer is in breach of standard hours. I think you will find that your friend works piecemeal hours, i.e. casual or part-time. Providing misleading information does not strengthen your case.

Oh my god… The accused does accept responsibility and will suffer any and all consequences!! Oh so quick to judge and stereo type!!! There is obviously no point in trying to get his story out cos u lot seem to lack the simple trait of being OPEN MINDED!!! Does severe Mental Health issues not say anything?? The accused is not a criminal he works 2 support himself whether it be outside of whatever guidelines u nit pickers had to bring up or not!! If u nosy lot were educated enuff u’d know his boss wrote him an out standing reference for court yesterday which indeed helped with his release! He is far from the menace u lot r putting him out 2 b!! No one is trying to justify anything merely just allow both sides 2 b told.. and if only u lot new if only… N in this case the police r the ‘big bad ones’, knowing his mental health history they should have taken him straight 2 b assessed by a doctor but instead they had 2 push him in ways sumone in his state would definately react wrongly too.. Id love too c any of u take a walk in his shoes n c just how far wldnt go!!!

Lol mate u obviously dnt understand how little the crop was.. If u think u cld buy ur own house of 9 plants than u clearly r STUPID!!! Im sure stats would prove theres just as many if not more drug crops found in private housing as public housing.. Get off ur high horse n stop trying 2 stereo type the accused as u r clearly very un educated on the topic!

I’m hoping the boss made some attempt to spell and employ grammar in his written reference.

And let me guess, Stacee… the marijuana was purely for personal use, right?!

Let’s hope his friends, Stacee and Violet (if they are actually two separate people) can keep their friend on the straight and narrow. Might find these bail conditions hard to comply with (the following is from today’s Canberra Times):

A man accused of attacking police with a syringe after they found a cannabis crop in his home has been granted bail on the proviso he steer clear of alcohol and drugs.

Jye Joseph McGrath was arrested at his home in Griffith on Monday night after police, responding to reports of a disturbance, allegedly found nine large cannabis plants and a hydroponic set-up in a bedroom. Police alleged McGrath, who had previously been cooperative, then lunged at an officer with a syringe.
