Latest arrest part of million dollar drug haul in south west Victoria
From Victoria Police
Portland Police arrested a Melbourne man and seized around 300 cannabis plants today as part of Operation Highrise, which is focused on targeting high-end drug-related offending in the area.
As part of the local operation, detectives arrested a 40-year-old man from Melbourne and charged him with one count of cultivating commercial quantities of cannabis after a raid on a Portland property earlier today.
He has been remanded in custody and will appear in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court at a later date.
Today’s arrest follows hot on the heels of seven other raids of drug or crop houses across Horsham, Hamilton and Portland over the past couple of months.
