NATIONAL Police have seized more than 220 marihuana plants from a home in Almeria.
An investigation began in early January when officers became aware that a house on Calle Sierra de Maria was reportedly being used for growing and selling marihuana.
According to reports, the house had ‘sophisticated’ electrical and irrigation systems which gave the person in charge of the plantation the perfect environment for growing the plants.
The house, which is owned by the bank but rented out, was also illegally hooked up to the electricity grid.
After further inquiries, police proceeded to arrest a 42-year-old, who was renting the property as allegedly responsible for the plantation, who had 16 previous arrests for similar crimes.
When police were finally able to enter the property, they found and seized a total of 221 marihuana plants, 39 halogen lamps and three air filters among many other items used for the growing and containment of marihuana.
