A number of cannabis plants were among the items removed from the property in Cranbourne after police swarmed the home around 5.30am.

“It was really scary because my other half woke me up and all I hear him saying is Justine, the police are here”.

The critical incident response team assisted with the raid and a 28-year-old man arrested at the scene.

Police say this raid was sparked by a tip-off from the community coinciding with Crime Stoppers launching the ‘dob in a dealer’ campaign today encouraging people to speak up when they notice suspicious activity.
