Feilding police seize over a 100 cannabis plants

A tip-off from a vigilant member of the public lead police to a massive cannabis growing operation near Feilding.  

One-hundred-and-forty-three cannabis plants were pulled from a small clearing on a farmer's property in the Kimbolton area.  

A person walking on a river accessway noticed the plants and informed the farmer, who immediately reported it to police.  

Acting Sergeant Ben Stanley said a team of officers went to the property last week and got to work dismantling the "commercial-size" growing operation.  

"The plants ranged from half a metre high to two-and-a-half metres high, and most of them were ready for harvesting," Act Sgt Stanley said.  

"It didn't take long to remove the plants and the farmer was very appreciative."  

No one has yet been held responsible for the growing operation. 

"Someone out there will be disappointed when they realise their grow has been removed."
