A man has been charged after a police drug bust that uncovered a large cannabis operation in Christchurch yesterday.
Police executed a search warrant at a Marshland Rd property from about 8.15am on Thursday.
A police spokeswoman said the armed offenders squad attended as a precaution.
"Commercial quantities of cannabis were located at the address."
A 38-year-old man has been charged with cultivating cannabis and is due to appear in the Christchurch District Court on January 27.
In October three people were arrested in relation to a series of raids that uncovered multiple cannabis-growing operations in Christchurch.
The raids, which took place in Mairehau, were a part of a large-scale probe in the city.
At least five properties were searched and police uncovered several big cannabis operations, a large amount of cash and unspecified items.
