Dope, firearms seized at Lavington unit

CANNABIS valued at several thousand dollars, along with a hydroponic set-up and two guns, were seized from a unit in Lavington yesterday.

Albury police Inspector Kim Sorensen said information received led to the discovery at 4pm inside a Kaitlers Road unit.

A Lavington man, 30, who was still being interviewed by investigators last night, is facing serious drug and firearm charges.

Insp Sorensen said a “quantity of green vegetable matter” that police believe to be cannabis was seized along with a hydroponic set-up that was almost ready to be used.

He said cash, a 12-gauge shotgun, a modified .22 calibre rifle and ammunition were also seized.

“It certainly interrupts one part of a supply chain,” Insp Sorensen said.

He said it emphasised police would follow-up on information passed to them and urged residents to come forward with information about drugs.
