A Kyabram man, 20, has been charged after police found cannabis plants, seedlings and a machete at a Kyabram address last week.

Kyabram police executed a search warrant at the property about 12.15pm on Thursday and Leading Senior Constable Corey Wild said the size of the find was a bit of a surprise.

‘‘We were aware some cannabis plants were being grown in the garden at this property and applied for the search warrant,’’ he said.

‘‘When we executed the warrant we located 18 established cannabis plants and 16 cannabis seedlings, being grown both in the garden and inside the house, as well as a large machete.

‘‘We also seized a quantity of dried cannabis.’’

As a result of the find, the man found at the property was arrested and interviewed at Kyabram Police Station.

‘‘He has been charged with cultivation, possession and use of cannabis and possession of a prohibited weapon and has been bailed to appear at Echuca Magistrates Court in April,’’ Ldg Sen Const Wild said.

‘‘In this instance the information leading to the arrest did not come from members of the public, but we encourage all residents to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800333000 with any information which may be able to assist police.’’
