Marihuana farmer arrested

Policia Nacional

TWO men and a woman have been arrested in Alhaurin de la Torre suspected of drug-trafficking.

Following tip-offs that an Italian resident was distributing marihuana-plant cuttings to prospective cultivators in the area, an investigation led to discovery of a drug greenhouse in the man’s home.

A total of 5,200 marihuana seedlings, 100 plants and cannabis hearts were confiscated along with two vehicles, €1,370 in cash and various other items used to manipulate and prepare the drugs.

The 39-year-old Italian is also suspected of cheating electrical suppliers as the home’s electricity meter appeared to have been tampered with.
