Police have arrested a Yagoona man allegedly connected to three indoor cannabis plantations estimated to be worth $3,300,000.

In June, police received information that cannabis was apparently being cultivated at a property at Denham Court.

Following a surveillance operation, Liverpool police officers executed a search warrant at the premises on June 26. They found what they described as a significant indoor cannabis plantation.

A vehicle which police had observed attending the location was registered to a property at Yagoona.

Last Wednesday, July 3, police found the vehicle at the address and during a subsequent search of the car allegedly found equipment consistent with equipment found at the indoor plantation. Last Friday, July 5, police returned to the premises at Yagoona and arrested a man, 37.

He was taken to Bankstown police station where a record of his fingerprints was taken.

The prints allegedly matched prints that had been taken from two indoor cannabis plantations previously, at Botany in 2013 and another at Leumeah in 2015.

The man was charged with three counts of cultivating a prohibited drug.

He was refused bail and was due in Parramatta court last Saturday, July 6.
