    was there supposed to be an /s here?

    Why would they call a growers house and give them time to pack up before inspecting? :confused::confused:

    He will definitely get compensated for the damages after the exposure of this to FB/Youtube etc. But questions are still raised with how the police were able to do so without the correct warrant?

    sounds like no warrant existed, which begs the question - did they even need one?

    What? The OP subject did nothing illegal. He didn't bypass anything. There was no crime & no reason to break in. Just unfounded suspicions.

    The grow cave in power's video did bypass it, but the supplier can still see there is power being used & sent out people to locate the location. Once they did that, the police were contacted. Also, the OP subject is in South Australia and the grow cave was in the USA...

    This is a total infringement of this persons basic rights... Police should be held to account for this error.

    But you stated explicitly:
    My point is that 'innocent until proven guilty' is still the rule of the land, & he had not bypassed the power meter in any way at all. Thus had committed no crime & was not a crook.

    he was proven not guilty so not charged with any crimes.

    suspicious activity = popo gonna come lookin'. lookin' ain't guilty.
