A man has been fined in Orange Local Court for cultivating two marijuana plants that weighed 20 kilograms each.

On April 10, police conducted a search warrant at the Warrendine Street home of Kenneth Norman Sharpe, 51, and found two cannabis plants in a raised garden bed that had a mesh fence and laser light roof.

One of the plants was 1.5 metres high and the other was between two and 2.25 metres in height.

The plants were fertilised and the garden was mulched.
