$1m worth of cannabis seized from Northern Rivers home

POLICE have yet to charge after officers swooped on a rural property at Commissioners Creek on the NSW far north coast, netting almost $1 million worth of cannabis plants. 

NSW Police seized 420 cannabis plants, which they estimate to be worth almost a million dollars, at about 5.45pm on Saturday, when Tweed/Byron Local Area Command police executed a search warrant on the home near Tweed Heads.

Police said a sophisticated hydroponic set up was found in the home, as well as a significant amount of fertilisers and hydroponic equipment.

Investigators have estimated the crop had a street value of about $990,000.

No arrests have been made in relation to the warrant and inquiries continue.
