‘Pot’ plants in real estate ads bring Adelaide police to the open for inspection

Photos allegedly showing cannabis growing in two pot plants in the backyard of a Henley Beach South house were inadvertently included in a real estate ad, drawing the attention of the police.

The plants showed up in photos while the house was advertised for sale.

Police attended the house with a search warrant yesterday and subsequently seized the cannabis plants and reported the tenant, a 28-year-old man.

In an unrelated case also in Adelaide’s western suburbs police searched a house at Woodville allegedly locating 55 cannabis plants growing hydroponically in four rooms of the house.

A 40-year-old man from Woodville was arrested and charged with cultivating a commercial quantity of cannabis and possess proscribed equipment.

Both men will appear in the Port Adelaide Magistrates Court at a later date.
