Police are appealing to the public for help to locate two men who were last seen on the Far North Coast last week.
Acting on information received, officers from the Tweed/Byron Local Area Command raided a property on Eviron Road, Condong, last Friday (16 January).
Inside the residence, as well as in two sheds, police will allege they located 1549 cannabis plants in an elaborate hydroponic set-up. The plants have an estimated potential street value of more than $3 million.
Police will also allege they located more than $65,000 worth of cannabis leaf during the execution of the search warrant.
As a result of further inquiries, police have been made aware of a possible disturbance when two men attended the property the previous day (Thursday 15 January).
Investigators are now appealing for help to locate two men who have not been seen or heard from since attending the property.
Jethro Matheson, aged 30, is described to police as being of white/European appearance, 178cm tall, with a medium build and long brown hair.
Barry Grant, aged 52, is described to police as being of white/European appearance, with a short, stocky build.
Family and friends of the two men have told police it is unusual for them not to be in contact.
Strike Force Danbury was established last week to investigate the discovery of the cannabis plants, as well as the disappearance of Mr Matheson and Mr Grant.
The strike force comprises detectives from the Tweed/Byron Local Area Command with the assistance of the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad.
Members of the public who might have seen either of the two men, or been in contact with them, are urged to contact Tweed Heads Police Station on (07) 5536-0999 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
