Part of a rural property and $10,000 in cash have been forfeited after a police investigation into a cannabis operation in Greymouth.
In 2019, 136 plants were found at the home of 52-year-old Mark Rissman, during the execution of a search warrant by Greymouth police.
He was convicted of cultivating cannabis and possessing a firearm without a licence. Rissman was subsequently fined $3000 and sentenced to two months home detention.
Asset recovery action was taken in relation to approximately $10,000 in cash and the property itself.
