At the time of the bust, no-one was at home, driving further investigations.

The record haul of marijuana comes after SA Police seized bags of cannabis stored in multiple hotel rooms across Adelaide during April.

A NSW man, 23, was arrested over the seizures.

Detectives in the same month, also seized a large hydroponic cannabis crop including 163 mature cannabis plants and about 150kg of dried cannabis from a warehouse in Thebarton.

Later that week, another police raid in a Welland warehouse secured a second cannabis crop including 18 plants and about half a kilogram of cannabis bud.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
