CANNABIS plants and drug trafficking items were allegedly found at a Rye house last week.

Rosebud and other police arrested a 32-year-old woman and charged her with cultivating cannabis, trafficking a drug of dependence, possessing trafficking equipment, possessing the proceeds of crime and related charges, Thursday 4 February. She was bailed to appear at Dromana Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

“Targeting local-level and mid-tier drug crime to disrupt and dismantle networks is a focus and part of Victoria Police’s drug strategy,” Acting Sergeant Flyn Loughlin, of Rosebud police, said. “Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug in Victoria and all illicit drugs are major drivers of crime.”

He urged members of the Mornington Peninsula community with information on drug-related crimes to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000. Personal details can remain confidential.
