    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.

    Police can enter your yard and home without your consent to search for evidence if they reasonably suspect it may otherwise be hidden or destroyed. As Bourke said "house, with no one actively living there, have a power meter box clipping like a family of 4 jus got home. Mining rig + aircon + fridge + some CCTV would be close to 3kw/hr, and that's at 24/7"

    Just read the news article. The issue is to do with equipment damage and loss.

    Look at the timestamp of the article.

    I ran an insect breeding business from home for several years...

    I had a large shed with blacked out windows, Aircon and recirculating fans or a heater, recirculating fans and a dehumidifier 24/7. People would also turn up generally late in the afternoon (On their way home from work) to pick up orders. I always joked about being raided as part of a drug bust :lol: Looks like if I lived in SA I would have been!

    This is South Australia we are talking about, they probably thought he was using all that electricity to dispose of bodies.
