A 56-year-old man will face court after police seized more than 180 cannabis plants during a raid of a Downer home on Tuesday afternoon (19 February).

Around 3 pm, ACT Policing City Patrol members executed a search warrant at a residence in Downer, where they seized 182 cannabis plants, approximately 300 cannabis seeds and approximately two kilograms of dried cannabis.

Officer in Charge of City Station, Detective Station Sergeant Adrian Craft said the raid was another significant drug seizure for ACT Policing.

“Large quantities of cannabis such as this are often sold for criminal profit, so I applaud our officers for the success of this operation in getting these drugs off our streets,” Detective Station Sergeant Craft said.

ACT Policing said they will continue to target and disrupt the illicit production, distribution and trafficking of drugs in the ACT.

The man will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.

Anyone with any information about the manufacture, distribution or supply of illicit drugs is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.

Information can be provided anonymously.
