'It's an affront': Cops slam Myrtleford cannabis crop

12:45PM: A HYDROPONIC cannabis crop, consisting of 150 plants of varying size, has been seized by Myrtleford police.

The drugs were taken from a small farming property within the town boundary of Myrtleford on Sunday afternoon.

Leading Sen-Constable Anthony Short declined to go into detail about the crop, but said it had “the potential to earn significant sums of money”.

“It’s an affront to hard-working, honest people that work for a living and pay their taxes,” Sen-Constable Short said.

“Notwithstanding the known destructive ill-effects, health and social, of this stuff.”

Sen-Constable Short said no arrests had been made over the crop with investigations continuing and some people assisting with inquiries.
