The detention of 28-year old S.M.M. and 47-year old R.T.T. on charges of crimes against public health and defrauding the power supply followed the discovery of two indoor marijuana plantations in Gador.

Officers seized 426 marijuana plants from two different properties identified by the strong smell of the drug emanating from inside and by way above average electricity consumption.

In a separate operation in Berja Guardia searched six apartments in two blocks and found more than 1,000 marijuana plants and six illegal electricity connections in all. Three middle-aged men are under arrest.
