About 7.30am today, police executed a search warrant at a townhouse on Mort Street at Blacktown where they located a hydroponic cannabis crop.
Two men, aged 21 and 22, were arrested at the scene. Police allege both of the men are associates of the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gxxg.
They were taken to St Marys Police Station and each charged with cultivate prohibited plant, supply prohibited drug, and possess prohibited drug. They were each granted conditional bail to appear at Blacktown Local Court on 19 July, 2011.
During the search warrant, police located and seized over one kilogram of cannabis in one of the bedrooms and dismantled a crop site in the garage of the property.
