The fourth person arrested over a cannabis crop found at a property in South Australia's Riverland earlier this year has appeared in court.

Domenic Perre was arrested at a property in Adelaide's northern suburbs on Thursday with police alleging he was involved in a family drug-trafficking operation.

Police found six plants, about 11kg of dried cannabis and two guns hidden in a wall cavity at a property in Chaffey, near Renmark, in January.

Perre was charged with cultivating a controlled plant, possessing prescribed equipment and possessing a firearm without a licence.

He made no application for bail in Adelaide Magistrates Court and was remanded in custody to return to court on August 22.

Perre was once arrested over the bombing of the National Crime Authority office in Adelaide in 1994, which killed Detective Sergeant Geoffrey Bowen and injured lawyer Peter Wallis, but the charges were dropped because of a lack of evidence.
