ACT Policing has arrested a 40-year-old man following a search warrant in Mitchell on Friday 9 September.
About 8.10am police attended a warehouse where they located a hydroponic set up with a number of cannabis plants, a trafficable quantity of Methlamphetamine (ice) and Ecstasy tablets.
While at the premises, police also located child exploitation material in electronic, photographic and commercial publication forms.
AFP Digital Forensics attended and reviewed a number of electronic devices including phones, tablets, computers and data storage mediums. All were found to contain child exploitation material and were seized by police.
The man was arrested and conveyed to the ACT Watch House where he was charged with a number of offences including trafficking in a controlled drug, cultivating cannabis, and using a carriage service for child exploitation material.
He will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court this morning (Saturday 10 September).
Further charges are expected once the devices are processed.
