20-year-old man charged with possessing and cultivating cannabis

Police have raided a Barry’s Reef address allegedly seizing a small amount of cannabis plants and hydroponic equipment. 

Trentham Sergeant Nathan Gardiner said a 20-year-old Barry’s Hill man was arrested and charged by police this afternoon.

“He has been charged with cultivating cannabis plants in his home,” Sergeant Gardiner said.

“A small number of plants were seized and a hydroponic set-up.” 

The man was bailed to appear at the Bacchus Marsh Magistrates court in December.
