ALMOST two thousand cannabis plants have been seized following drug raids on plastic greenhouses (invernaderos).

Police found 664 plants during a raid on an invernadero, which are normally used to grow fruit and vegetables for northern Europe, near Albuñol on September 6.

The plastic drugs bust followed a raid on a greenhouse nearby, when civil guards found 560 plants.

In total, four marijuana factories on the Granada coast have been found under plastic since the middle of August.

Explaining the increase in the number of drug raids on invernaderos, a police spokesman said: “We have sources who tip us off. We can then locate the greenhouse and their owners. However, some are like cuckoos and it is difficult to locate them.”
