A 21-year-old involved in what police described as a sophisticated cannabis growing operation in Mataura was today convicted in the Gore District Court.

Shaharnaye Rose Massie appeared before Judge Michael Turner, and was remanded to October 2, for cultivation of cannabis earlier this year.

The court was told Massie followed instructions as directed by an associate to help grow the cannabis in a house in Mataura.

Police prosector Sergeant Rob Mills said it was a sophisticated indoor growing operation with 23 plants of 1m high.

A tent, lights, extractor fan and other growing equipment were found in the bedroom of the house.

Police said if the entire crop was cultivated for a year it could be worth $60,000 if sold in bulk.
