Fire led to drug discovery
A house with 108 cannabis plants was discovered in Cherrybrook last Wednesday.
Police made the discovery after links were found to another house on Beddington Road last Monday.
It is alleged a fire started when a transformer overheated.
Neighbours called Fire and Rescue despite protests from the owners.
Police found a number of cannabis plants in the house valued at $2000 each and a significant amount of cannabis leaf.
A number of items were seized including a laptop, which led to the investigation of another house in Francis Greenway Drive.
Two people were found at the house and a 40-year-old woman was charged with knowingly taking part in the cultivation of cannabis plants.
She will appear in Parramatta Local Court on April 4.
