Three men have been charged after police seized $1 million worth of cannabis plants from a Blue Mountains property.
Police initially searched a white van that pulled into an RBT station at Lawson in the Blue Mountains at 5pm yesterday after smelling a strong odour.
They seized 71 kgs of cannabis leaf with an estimated street value of $350,000, officers said.
A 43-year-old Fairfield West man and a 40-year-old Cabramatta man were arrested and charged with a number of offences.
Officers later searched a property in the area where they discovered a hydroponic cannabis set-up with 800 plants in the home and two sheds.
Police allege the estimated street value of the plants is $1 million.
A 38-year-old Fairfield West man was arrested at the property and charged.
The three men were refused bail and are expected to appear at Penrith Local Court today.
