Cannabis grow house on wheels busted by breath test

A random breath test and a familiar odour have revealed a cannabis grow house being lugged around in a rental truck.

Police made the discovery at a breath-testing site on Longfield Street in Stawell about 8.10pm on Thursday.

After intercepting the truck a suspicious smell prompted police to search the vehicle.

Inside they found 50 cannabis plants, all about a metre tall, 50 transformers and other crop-growing equipment.

The driver, a 25-year-old Elizabeth South man, was charged with drug offences and will face the Ballarat Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
