Marijuana plants found near cave house in Gran Canaria 

More than 200 marijuana plants of up to two metres high have been found in Mogán, Gran Canaria.

The Civil Guard said they were growing in a “perfectly prepared” environment to favour their development hidden in four crops in a rural area of the island.

Three people have been arrested, two Spaniards and a foreigner, aged between 26 and 52.

La Benemérita explained that the investigation was initiated after different information obtained about the possible illegal cultivation of cannabis located in a rural area next to the Soria dam.

In a police raid, five different marijuana crops scattered in the vicinity of a cave house and a cabin located in the area of Huertas de Soria were found.

The five crops were scattered in four independent greenhouses, the fifth crop being attached to the hut.

In addition, the plants were in different phases of growth, locating both small seedlings and those developed during the harvest phase.
