There was also a couple of dozen bottles of ganja pickled in booze, Daily News reported.

Several accounts books with names of customers and some bank account books were also taken into evidence.

Police said that the man – who used to live at the property with his Thai wife before they split up – has a previous offence for ganja against his name.

He told the cops that getting ganja to sell was getting hard so he decided to cut out the middle man and grow and distribute his own.

Now the police are expanding the case to track down those buying from him.
