A man and two women have been charged as part of an operation targeting the cultivation of cannabis in Sunbury.
Sunbury police, with the assistance of the Fawkner Divisional Response Unit, executed warrants at four properties on Phillip Drive, Glastonbury Drive and Langport Crescent since March and discovered a total 486 cannabis plants.
The most recent warrant was executed at the Langport Crescent house about 9.30am Wednesday morning where 219 cannabis plants were seized.
Two women, of no fixed address, were arrested at the scene.
Thi Viet Le, aged 20, and 25-year-old Tien Thuy Hoang were both charged with cultivation of a commercial quantity of a narcotic plant.
The two women faced an out of session’s court hearing overnight and appeared at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court today.
The pair was remanded in custody and will reappear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 19 November.
A 22-year-old man was also charged back in July with cultivation of a commercial quantity of a narcotic plant, theft and damage related offences.
Hieu Duc Nguyen, of no fixed address, faced an out of session’s court hearing at the time and was remanded in custody.
He is set to reappear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 23 October.
The raid comes a fortnight after nine people were charged with drug offences after a series of raids in Sunbury and Romsey.
