BEL­MONT Po­lice un­cov­ered a hy­dro­ponic set-up, nine cannabis plants and more than 600g of mar­i­juana dur­ing a search of a home in River­vale last Tues­day.

A search of the Sur­rey Road home in the early morn­ing found the il­le­gal sub­stances, along with scales and heat lamps be­lieved to have been used to grow and sup­ply cannabis.

A cam­ou­flage cross­bow was also found on the prop­erty.

A 37-year-old River­vale man has been charged with drug pos­ses­sion, in­tent to sell or sup­ply and car­ry­ing a pro­hib­ited weapon.

He will ap­pear at Perth Mag­is­trates Court on Fe­bru­ary 16.

Bel­mont po­lice also searched an­other River­vale home at Nan­nine Place and re­cov­ered two marine echo sounders and a marine stereo sys­tem be­lieved to have been stolen.

Any­one who may have had marine equip­ment stolen should call the po­lice sta­tion to as­sist with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Bel­mont po­lice first-class con­sta­bles Luke Gobby and Andy May with some of the il­le­gal items found dur­ing the re­cent searches.
