Thanks to a police operation carried out by the Policia Nacional, a large-scale, marijuana plantation was discovered in a cortijo in Salobreña.
The putative owner of the illegal plants was arrested and 252 plants, which were on the point of harvesting were destroyed. The 54-year-old man was also charged with having set up an illegal hook-up to the electricity mains.
The police had received a tip-off about this indoor, marijuana plantation, situated in the area known as Barranco del Cambrón, in December and upon searching the premises discovered the crop in an outhouse.
