HOMEGROWN: Rise in clandestine production.

FOLLOWING a disagreement with her partner, a woman returned home to find the locks changed.

Unable to get into their property on the Nijar-Retamar road, she called the Policia Nacional who sent a patrol to the house.

The woman’s partner opened the door to her and the policemen, who by then had noticed that the door to the garage had three huge ventilation ducts let into it.  

Their curiosity aroused, they investigated further and once inside were confronted by 102 marijuana plants at various stages of development. There were also lamps, reflectors, industrial filters and other equipment necessary for intensive marijuana cultivation.  

The male, who is allegedly a small-scale dealer supplying customers in Nijar, was arrested and charged with drugs offences.
