Man’s home restrained after Higgins drug bust

POLICE have granted a restraining order over a $1.1m Higgins residence after they seized 31 cannabis plants and a firearm. 

Officers searched the property on Friday (July 10) and uncovered a sophisticated hydroponic cannabis growing operation spread across multiple rooms.

They also discovered and seized a single barrel shotgun. 

No arrests have been made but police would like to speak to the 40-year-old owner of the property who was not home at the time of the search warrant.

Police are encouraging the man to present himself to Belconnen Police Station.
