Police find cannabis farms inside articulated lorries! 

Police in Spain discovered two cannabis farms being cultivated inside a pair of articulated lorries!

The trailers were more than 12 metres long and were deliberately set up to be mobile to make sure distribution of the marijuana could be immediate, as well as to hide the operation from the authorities.

Three people have been arrested for crimes against public health and defrauding an electricity supply.

The cannabis farms inside the lorries were so specialised that they had 50 heat lamps, a dozen fans for ventilation, four air conditioning units and a complex irrigation system.

“From the outside, you could detect nothing,” said a police spokesman.

The trucks were discover-ed inside a warehouse in Albolote, Granada. A third plantation was located on the upper floor of the same warehouse. In all, 1,128 marijuana plants were seized, 700 of them growing inside the lorries.

Police also seized a laptop, eight mobile phones and various equipment designed to promote the artificial growth of ‘cannabis sativa’ plants and its subsequent processing.

The investigation began in August as a result of various information obtained about a criminal organisation de-dicated to the distribution of marijuana.
