The Guardia Civil, whilst out searching for a lost elderly man using a helicopter, came across a plantation of cannabis sativa in Escóznar; a dependency of Illora.
The search for the lost 88-year-old resident of Láchar, who had disappeared on the 9th, involved Guardia units from both Loja and Illora. Unfortunately, the lifeless body of the man was found the next day.
It’s not the first time that a Guardia helicopter has chanced upon illegal plantation, one of which was hidden amongst a group of maize on the vega area of Granada.
