A police operation mounted by elements of the Western Division’s Anti-Drug and Smuggling Unit (Adsu) on Monday morning, November 28, on an overgrown plot of land in Cluny resulted in the uprooting of two hundred and eighty-six cannabis plants. The plants are between one and two meters high. The market value of these plants is Rs 858,000.
Following information obtained by the men of Inspector Fowdar and Sergeant Petit, a spotting operation was carried out early on Monday morning, November 28. The exercise was carried out with the assistance of a police helicopter.
Once the area under the cannabis crop had been identified, a ground operation was carried out to uproot two hundred and eighty-six mature cannabis plants. These plants were subsequently transported to the Adsu office in Rose Hill.
An investigation was launched to trace the alleged grower of these plants.
