A Briton has been arrested after turning his luxury seaside villa into a huge marijuana plantation.
Police estimate around €170,000 was spent on turning the basement of the detached chalet into a complex drug laboratory.
When police raided the four-bed Benalmádena villa they found 900 plants up to 2 metres high which were being harvested four time a year.
The high-tech operation was being run by a Dutch druglord. In total 15 people were detained.
The basement lab was divided into three compartments and included special lamps, reflective materials and a hydraulic system.
A luxury yacht with a false bottom was used to traffic drug seeds and pollen from Morocco.
Police recovered 130 kilos of the drug, of which 30 was ready for sale.
The crackdown comes amid heightened anti-drug police activity along the Spanish coast.
A Dutch-registered boat carrying 20 kilos of hashish was intercepted off Cadiz on Friday.
