Fourth arrest over Renmark crop, SA

A man has been arrested following further investigation into a cannabis crop discovery in Renmark in January, according to SA Police.

On 6 January, police attended a property in Chaffey and discovered a number of hydroponically grown cannabis plants, dried cannabis as well as two firearms concealed in a wall cavity.

This morning, detectives from Drug and Organised Crime Task Force attended a house on Cross Keys Road in Salisbury.

There, they arrested a 60–year-old Salisbury man. He is expected to be charged with aggravated trafficking of a commercial quantity of cannabis, cultivate cannabis and firearms offences.

The arrest follows three other arrests, a 56-year-old Renmark man on 6 January, a 51-year-old Renmark woman on 13 January and a 26-year-old Angle Vale man on 8 June.

The man has been refused bail and is expected to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court later today.

Investigations into the matter are ongoing and police have not ruled out further arrests.
