Carey Park raid uncovers 39 cannabis plants

BUNBURY police have continued their crackdown on drugs after seizing 39 hydroponic cannabis plants in a raid on a Carey Park property.

Police have charged two people following the seizure after locating the plants in a shed at the back of the house.

A male, 59, has been charged with cultivating cannabis, possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia while a female, 31, has been charged with possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Sergeant Lou Williams said removing the drugs from the streets was a win for police and the Bunbury community.

“Any win’s a good win and it’s good to have those plants off the streets,” Sergeant Williams said.

“We encourage people to keep reporting what they hear to police and Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.”

The pair has been summonsed to appear in court.
