“Largest” marijuana plantation shut down

Published

The Guardia Civil has arrested three people for the cultivation of an “indoor” marijuana plantation with more than 9,000 plants, one of the largest crops seized in the province of Guadalajara in recent years. During the search of the warehouse, the agents located those responsible hiding in a 15-metre-long tunnel that they had dug to connect the plantation to the electrical grid.

These arrests have been carried out by the Organised Crime and Anti-Drug Team of the Guadalajara Guardia Civil within the framework of operation “Chincras”. The agents had been investigating an industrial warehouse for months destined for commercial food export activity.

During the course of the investigations, it was found that, several months after renting the warehouse, apparently no commercial activity was being carried out, but it was found that several people of Chinese origin unloaded a multitude of plasterboard panels and other materials, possibly intended for the installation of a marijuana plantation.

Last Tuesday, a search was carried out, authorised by the head of the Court of Instruction number 4 of Guadalajara, in an industrial warehouse in an industrial estate in Cabanillas del Campo, in Guadalajara. There, one of the largest “indoor” marijuana crops located in recent years in this province was dismantled.

During the search, agents from the Citizen Security Unit of the Command (USECIC) located those responsible for the plantation hiding in an underground tunnel, about 15 metres long, which they built to connect through an illegal connection to the electrical network.

As a result of the operation, more than 9,000 marijuana plants were seized, as well as effects for the installation and operation of the plantation, valued at €36,000.

On the ground floor of the warehouse there was a perfectly equipped kitchen where they stored a large amount of food in refrigerators and freezers, as well as hygiene products, enough to last several months without going outside the facility.

The Guadalajara Guardia Civil carried out proceedings for the arrest of three people of Chinese nationality, aged between 40 and 57 years of age, as alleged perpetrators of a crime against public health, fraud of electricity and belonging to a criminal group.

This operation remains open, so the possibility of more arrests in relation to these events is not ruled out.
