New Member
A man has been charged over a haul of drugs found by Australian police in scrub in north-west Victoria yesterday.

Police executed a warrant on a property at Hattah, between Mildura and Ouyen yesterday morning and found the remains of cannabis crops and an irrigation system in nearby state forest. Kilometres of piping had been laid to service a number of marijuana crops, which were growing inside the Hattah-Kulkyne National Park.

Sergeant Mark Edwards says the pipes were traced back to a nearby property.
"We've executed a drug search warrant on the property," Sergeant Edwards said. We've uncovered a number of containers that've been buried into the ground containing large amounts of processed cannabis of a high quality, and quantities of cash that've also been buried in the ground, also a number of firearms."

A 53-year-old man has been bailed to appear in Mildura Magistrate's Court on Monday, charged with cultivating, possessing and trafficking drugs and possession of an unregistered hand gun.
