UPDATE 3.30PM:

A SOPHISTICATED marijuana grow house that was dismantled by Mackay Police allegedly contained drugs worth at least $62,000.

Detective Inspector Brendan Smith said Tactical Crime Squad and Northern Beaches station officers seized 31 marijuana plants from a Beaconsfield address on Wednesday.

"To have it in a garage, how people expect not to be caught is ridiculous," he said.

Det Insp Smith said locating grow houses like these are rare, especially ones this big.

A 41-year-old Beaconsfield man has been issued with a notice to appear for the offences of producing dangerous drugs, possession of a dangerous drug and possession of things used in a crime and possession of drug utensils. He will appear in the Mackay Magistrates Court on August 14.

A 41-year-old Beaconsfield woman was offered drug diversion.
