'Booby-trapped' cannabis crops found in bushland

Recommended Posts

Police have found booby-trapped cannabis plantations growing in remote bushland on the New South Wales south coast, in the area where a bushfire has been burning for two weeks.
The first two plantations were found on Monday in the Jerrawangala National Park by the Rural Fire Service (RFS) and the Nowra police drug unit.
Officers say the crop had five rabbit traps surrounding it and an established watering system.
They seized 173 plants, which have an estimated street value of $173,000.
A further five plantations were uncovered by Shoalhaven Police yesterday, off the Deans Gap Road in Yerriyong bushland.
These cannabis plants were all fenced off and surrounded by wire and animal traps.
Police had to be winched into the remote area to remove 53 cannabis plants, worth up to $106,000.
The crops have been uncovered in the same area as the Deans Gap bushfire to the west of Sussex Inlet.
Police and the RFS are working together to try to find any other plantations.
