Hundreds of cannabis plants have been found growing in a Queensland house which has been converted into a drugs factory.

Marijuana plants almost as tall as the ceiling can be seen in police photos and footage shows bundles of electrical wiring to supply the sophisticated lighting system.

Officers found five rooms fully kitted out with lights, fans and irrigation systems when they raided the home in Old Warwick Road, The Summit, on Saturday morning.

There were also two drying racks and dozens of sacks full of the illicit drug.

More cannabis plants were even found being cultivated in the garage.

A 39-year-old Gailes man has been charged with production and possession of dangerous drugs, possession of a thing used in connection with a crime and the unlawful taking of electricity.

Detective Sergeant Damien Grace urged residents to report any suspicious behaviour.

"We are committed to removing harmful drugs from the community and we accomplish that through proactive policing and information from the public," he added.

"We continue to encourage members of the public to contact Crime Stoppers if they notice suspicious behaviour in and around their neighbourhoods."
