GUARDIA CIVIL officers were called for assistance after an explosion in a house in Seron.
The occupant was evacuated to hospital with hand injuries and a search revealed that no-one else was at home. However, it also revealed 12 marijuana plants and almost 5 kilos of marijuana and hemp leaves.
They also found that the explosion occurred while the 54-year-old occupant – now arrested – was cooking marijuana oil. The saucepan caught fire, explosives experts said later, igniting an aerosol can of gas used for refilling lighters.
