A man has been charged after 45 stolen bonsai plants worth $30,000 were found at his property in Sydney’s south-west.
Police say they seized the valuable miniature plants from the backyard of a home at Canley Vale last Friday.
A 44-year-old man was arrested and charged with recklessly dealing with the proceeds of crime and having stolen goods.
The man has been granted strict conditional bail to appear in Fairfield local court on 15 January.
Police are now trying to match the recovered plants with their owners and are asking anyone who has had bonsai stolen to contact Fairfield City police area command.
