Pot growers in crime spotlight

CANNABIS cultivators be warned -- the Crime Stoppers crew is after you.

The theme for day four of Crime Stoppers Week 2013 is "help stamp out residential grow rooms".

Cannabis is Tasmania's number one drug and, according to police, most of the cannabis distributed in Australia is hydroponically grown.

Residential grow rooms are set up in sheds, garages and spare rooms, bringing commercial drug cultivation into suburban areas and raising police concerns for community safety.

"For this reason we've selected residential grow rooms as one of the three themes for Crime Stoppers Week 2013," Crime Stoppers Tasmania chief executive Tamara Stokes said.

"People may not know how to recognise that what they have seen might actually be a residential grow room."

Signs to look out for include:

  • Blacked-out windows in several rooms of houses or garages and light leakage at odd hours
  • Exhaust fans venting from sheds or the side of houses and the constant buzz of ventilation
  • Extensive renovations to garages, involving the construction of internal rooms within the garage, using materials such as agricultural pipes and plastic sheeting
  • The constant sounds of pumps, fans, or running water from garages or sheds
  • A strong chemical or cannabis smell, which is a strong and sickly scent
  • The movement of items in darkness such as garbage bags 
  • A large number of vehicles or foot traffic calling at the residence at unsociable hours
  • Closed circuit TV gear installed in garages that do not appear to contain anything of obvious value, such as expensive vehicles or tools.

Anyone with information about suburban cannabis crops is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, with rewards on offer.
