Marijuana plantation found in Sevilla

The Guardia Civil in Alcalá del Río, Sevilla, have arrested two people who were operating a large marijuana plantation in their basement.

An investigation began after the police noticed a dramatic, 500%, increase in the number of young people in Burguillos and villages around Alcalá del Río being found in posession of small amounts of marijuana. The investigation led to the discovery of a hydroponic plantation of 64 plants in the basement of a house.

The set-up was sophisticated with ventilation, heating systems, humidity and water PH controls allowing the production of up to six crops a year.

The two detainees, aged 18 years and 23 years, have been charged with crimes against the public health.
