Police have seized 10 cannabis plants and $13,000 in cash after finding a Honda Accord filled with plants.
Officers said they were patrolling Bruce when they saw a Honda Accord with a “substantial amount” of black plastic inside it on Friday, 29 July.
When the car was pulled over and the male driver stepped out of the vehicle, police said an “overwhelming odour of cannabis emanated from the cabin.”
A subsequent search allegedly revealed 10 cannabis plants and about $13,000 in cash on the front seat.
The 44-year-old Homebush (NSW) driver was not drug affected while driving.
He was charged with possession of more than 50 grams of cannabis and possession of property suspected of being the proceeds of crime.
He’s scheduled to appear in court in September.
Police urged anyone with information about the sale and supply of illicit drugs in the ACT to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
