Police discovered a grow house with over 100 cannabis plants in Forde on Wednesday night.

Police responded and noticed property commonly associated with growing cannabis, when they entered the house they said they smelt "a strong odour believed to be cannabis".

Detectives then returned after obtaining a search warrant.
