Canberra police officers have charged a Sydney man after seizing 260 cannabis plants, about 100kg of cannabis leaf and hydroponic growing equipment from a house in Macgregor on Tuesday.
Trong Tan Ho, 26, appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court and was charged with cultivating a commercial quantity of a controlled plant for sale.
Prosecutors did not oppose the man's release on bail, as long as he agreed to a list of strict conditions.
The conditions include that he surrender any passports, report once a week to Cabramatta police, not go near any airports and only return to the ACT for court and lawyers appointments.
Mr Ho, through an interpreter, agreed to the conditions, and Special Magistrate Margaret Hunter granted him bail to live at his home in Cabramatta.
No pleas were entered.
He is next due in court on August 1.
An ACT Policing spokesperson said officers seized the plants after executing a search warrant at a house in Cumpston Place.
Anyone with information about the manufacture, distribution or supply of illicit drugs in the ACT is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
