A POLICE investigation into illicit indoor marijuana growing setups in Almeria resulted in three arrests.

National Police reported they had detained two men and a woman in their thirties after uncovering two properties being used to grow the plants and a third location used as a ‘nursery’ and to hide vehicles.

Police seized 311 cannabis plants at different stages of growth and dried. Officers also found a 22-calibre revolver, ammunition, three knives and nearly €1,000 in cash.

Police opened investigations into a possible illegal plantation in June last year after an electricity company inspection of a house in Calle Jardineros detected an illegal hookup to the power supply registering excessively high consumption.

At this time the power consumption abruptly stopped. But police kept a close eye on the property and 14 months later it became clear from the constant noise of machines and the smell of marijuana the illicit activities had resumed, also pointing investigators in the direction of the two other locations.
