Charnwood grow busted

By johnboy - 9 July 2013 6

A 23-year-old McKellar man and a 23-year-old Spence man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today charged with drug offences following a vehicle stop on Mulligans Flat Road, Throsby yesterday (Monday, July 8).

Around 1.30pm members of the Drug and Organised Crime team conducted a vehicle stop on a light rigid truck. A search of the vehicle revealed 78 mature cannabis plants.

The driver of the vehicle was arrested and conveyed to the ACT Watch House, while the passenger was released from the scene.

Subsequent police enquiries revealed the cannabis was cultivated at a premises in Charnwood. Police attended the premises and located a male person, who fled on foot. He was later found nearby and arrested.

A search warrant commenced at the premises and a sophisticated hydroponic set-up was located in two rear sheds.

The two men will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today on charges of possession of a trafficable quantity of drugs, and cultivation of a prohibited plant.

I wonder what the cost of setting up the “vehicle checks” was…

Seriously though, I can understand them wanting to check for the “hard” drugs such as cocaine, heroin, ice and ecstasy, but surely they have better things to worry about than a bit of weed.
And yes, 78 plants is just “a bit of weed”. Comparatively, this would be worth MAYBE 200g of cocaine, or a bag roughly the size of my fist…

One if the guys busted was named Adam Jabal, is he part of the Jabal Halal fruit shop?

He would appear to be the one in the family business that is in charge of the leaf vegetable section.

If I recall correctly, other family members may also have previously been in that section.

Probably the most interesting thing to happen in Throsby to date.
