Police in South Australia break into a suspected drug greenhouse but find only crypto mining gear; now the owner is considering setting up a lawsuit
In Adelaide, South Australia, police have broken into a private property, believing it to be a drug greenhouse. However, all they found was crypto mining equipment. The owner of the house, Rob Butvila, arrived home on Monday to find the gate and the doors of his house broken.
Oops, a mistake has been made
The ‘greenhouse’ the police had been looking for proved to be a set of mining gear with a powerful ventilation mechanism.
On the calling card the police left, it says, “We called today, but could not find anyone present”.
The owner even posted a video shot with a smartphone, showing the damage made to the house and saying that when he attempted to call the local police station, they just hung up on him, thus refusing to even discuss the damage. He uploaded the video on Facebook and YouTube. On the latter, it has gotten over 8,000 views.
His Facebook post goes:
“I TURN UP TO MY PROPERTY TO PREPARE IT FOR RENT, TO FIND YOU HAVE KICKED MY DOOR IN, CUT MY LOCKS AND THEN YOU REFUSE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND HANG UP ON ME!!!!! FOR WHAT, BECAUSE YOU THOUGHT A COMPUTER WAS A GROW ROOM OR SOMETHING???!
you could have just looked in the window instead of causing damage!”
No offence, mate, we were just doing our job
Rob Butvila says he talked to one of the police officers who admitted that he and other policemen had broken into the house, but claiming the place remained just as secured as when they came in.
Still, Butvila insists that the police did not even bother to lock the doors, and now a hard drive has gone missing along with the security camera cable. That, in his opinion, would be at least $1,000 worth of damage to compensate.
As per the man, the police became suspicious of his house when they saw solar panels on the roof and heard fans working, even though other houses in the neighbourhood had the same gear on them visible from the outside.
The police say that they always do their best to minimize the damage done during search operations on warrants, and they never warn anyone about it. A note was left for the owner to contact the police if questions arise.
Presently, Butvila is considering filing charges based on what has happened.

Tron adds another feather to its cap as GitHub data puts TRX in the top rungs
The GitHub data showed that Tron’s commits clocked in at 1,626 at a time when the in-app purchases witnessed a decline in magnitude from its highs in April and May.
Tron and Justin Sun have always worked in tandem to produce results in the cryptocurrency space with the network boasting impressive numbers across the spectrum. According to latest reports, the Tron network received another boost when Cryptomiso reported that TRX was ranked in at number 8 in the Github’s commits history.
The comparison and ranking were done considering 484 other cryptocurrencies and their commits history on GitHub over the past six months. According to Justin Sun:
“Hard work always shows!”
The data from Cryptomiso threw up some interesting facts, with Tron being one of the more popular mainstream cryptocurrencies on the ranking list, led by the relatively unknown Insolar [INS]. INS was followed by NULS, HOLO, Lisk, Raiden Network Token, Zilliqa and then Tron.
The GitHub data showed that Tron’s commits clocked in at 1,626 at a time when the in-app purchases witnessed a decline in magnitude from its highs in April and May. The in-app purchases on the Tron network have been the lowest in the past five months, a pattern similar across cryptocurrencies.
The number of watchers on the Tron network was 2258 while the community still expects Tron to go up on the ranking lists soon, beating the likes of Zilliqa and HOLO. Some users in the Tron community had other qualms with the industry, with one user, Cryptofaith tweeting:
“Does not matter what TRX or any other Crypto projects do. The whales and market makers of bitcoin control all other alts prices due to manipulation. I feel at this is worse than any Government as far as their control.Something needs to change or fear Crypto will be left the rich.”
The GitHub boost was not the only feather in Tron’s cap, as the organization had also reported that Tron had surpassed 12 million in terms of the blockchain’s block height. Tronscan, the popular blockchain analyzer had informed the community that:
At press time, Tronscan states that there are 1058 online nodes for Tron while the block height was at a 12.072 million. Tron further boasts impressive transactional numbers with the number of transactions on August 21 touching 3.52 million.
The community still expects the cryptocurrency to continue down this milestone achieving path, despite the bear pulling the asset to the 14th position on the price charts.

TRON Price Analysis August 21, 2019
The price of TRON was stable above the $0.02 demand zone before it got breached. The bulls held on to this zone for over a month before the bears broke it. On July 16, the bears made the first attempt to break the $0.02 demand zone but were resisted. The market went up again and reached a high of $0.03 supply zone.
However, the bulls could not sustain the upward move, and as a result, the bears took control of price and retested the $0.02 demand zone. On August 14, the bears finally broke the $0.02 demand zone, and the cryptocurrency continues its fall. As the $0.02 demand zone was broken, the market is prone to further depreciation. The coin is likely to reach a low of $0.0.015 demand zone.
Chart Indicators Reading
The daily Relative Strength Index period 14 is level 30, which signify that the price of TRON is approaching the oversold region of the indicator. The selling pressure of TRON is approaching exhaustion suggesting the bulls to take control of price.
The colored lines of the exponential moving averages are falling downward, indicating that the market is bearish. There is a likelihood of further depreciation the moment the lower trend line is broken. On the contrary, the market will go up if the price breaks the bearish trend line.
General Outlook for TRX
The chances of the price of TRON falling are higher than its upward movement. The downward movement of TRX may face little or no resistance as the coin continues its tumbling trades. The bears’ breaking of the $0.02 demand zone is responsible for the price fall of the cryptocurrency.
The coin may face resistance at the $0.015 demand zone. Nevertheless, if the bears break the $0.015 demand zone, the market of Tron (TRX) may revisit the previous low of $0.012 demand zone.
