HASTINGS police searched a Crib Point property last week and allegedly found a sophisticated drug cultivation operation.
A “substantial” quantity of plants were seized and a 51-year-old Crib Point man arrested. He is facing charges relating to the cultivation and possession of a drug of dependence.
Police said an illegal electrical bypass system was a potential fire hazard.
The man was bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrate’s Court at a later date.
