Man charged over Sydney grow houses

A man has been charged over three indoor cannabis plantations worth more than $3 million in Sydney.

The 37-year-old was arrested at a property in Yagoona in southwest Sydney on Friday.

Police said his arrest comes nine days after officers found a large indoor cannabis plantation at a Denham Court property following a tip-off.

A car spotted at the Denham Court premises led police to the Yagoona address.

The man's fingerprints allegedly match those from two other indoor cannabis plantations - one found at Botany in 2013 and another at Leumeah in 2015.

The plantations were estimated to be worth $3.3 million, police said.

The man is due to face the Parramatta Local Court on Saturday charged with three counts of cultivating a prohibited drug.
