A police operation mounted by officers from the Anti-Drug and Smuggling Unit (ADSU) Mahebourg, with the assistance of a police helicopter, resulted in the uprooting of sixty cannabis plants from an abandoned plot of land in Chamouny on Wednesday September 27. The plants, which measure between thirty centimetres and one metre twenty, have a market value of Rs 240,000.
The police operation was set up based on certain information, and the police helicopter was called in to fly over the area. Once the plants had been spotted, a search was organized before they were discovered. Initially, surveillance was carried out, but no one showed up at the scene.
The uprooted plants were taken to the ADSU office in Mahebourg. An investigation was launched to locate the alleged grower of the plants.
