Marijuana plantation discovered in El Hierro
Guardia Civil officers from Valverde in El Hierro, in cooperation with their colleagues in Playa de las Américas in Tenerife, have uncovered a marijuana plantation at La Frontera. Two people from Valverde, aged 42 and 66 years, are under investigation for the cultivation, processing and distribution of drugs and for belonging to a criminal organisation. The suspicion about the finca was confirmed when two men arrived at the Los Cristianos port on August 20. The two 41- and 53-year-olds, one from El Hierro and the other from Arona, were noticed by the police during their routine inspection, because one of the men was remarkably nervous while waiting for the other to drive the car out of the ferry's hold.
