The Civil Guard intervenes 64,800 cannabis plants in five hemp plantations in Almería
Operation Índalo50krampus has resulted in the arrest of two people
The wintering farms have been located in El Ejido (Almería), where the civil guards have found two plantations in an advanced state of growth and three in the drying process
The Civil Guard, within the framework of the Índalo50krampus operation, has intervened 64,800 cannabis plants in five farms in El Ejido (Almería). The two responsible for these plantations have been arrested as perpetrators of a crime against public health.
The finding occurred during one of the inspections carried out by the Civil Guard to control the cultivation of industrial hemp. During the inspections, the agents located two greenhouses with cannabis crops in an advanced stage of growth and another three, with the plants already cut and hung for drying.
This type of action entails a great effort in the cutting process for its destruction, due to the large number of plants involved.
The cultivation of hemp is allowed exclusively for industrial purposes, that is, those whose destination is the production of fiber or seeds. Also with the express authorization of the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS), when it is intended for scientific, medical or research purposes.
The proceedings ordered are delivered to the duty court of El Ejido (Almería), which has decreed prison for one of the detainees.
