The Civil Guard, within the CAMPERS operation, has arrested 5 men, of Albanian nationality, for drug trafficking offenses, belonging to a criminal organization and against the environment in the towns of Requena and Yátova in Valencia.

Two days later, agents seized more than 6,500 marijuana plants in the village of Hortunas.

The next plantation, with similar characteristics to the previous one, was discovered by the researchers the following month in the town of Yátova. A total of 22,000 marijuana plants were seized.

The authors did not hesitate to clear the area and cut down native trees to carry out their purposes and use the water from the nearby rivers to irrigate the plantation.
Likewise, these individuals had built camps, close to the plots, to stay. They used butane bottles to cook in the middle of the forest. Agents also found generator sets that were buried in pockets to avoid being seen from the air and minimize engine noise. Likewise, these generators pumped water into ponds that they managed to manufacture to supply the plantation.
