A 46-year-old Eaton man has been charged with several offences following the execution of a search warrant on Tuesday.

Australind police, in conjunction with Bunbury police and a canine drug unit, seized 65 cannabis plants, a quantity of amphetamines and a homemade taser while conducting the search at an Eaton property.

“The information was received from the community along with police intel,” officer-in-charge Sen. Sgt Mark Smith said.

“It’s another example of the community and the police working together.”

The man has been released on bail and will appear in Bunbury Magistrates Court at a later date.
