Civil Guard Raid Chinese Dope Factory

The Spanish Civil Guard has discovered a marijuana plantation with over 9,000 plants in an industrial estate in Cabanillas del Campo in the province of Guadalajara.

Three Chinese citizens, aged between 40 and 57, have been arrested for constructing an elaborate engineering project, including a 15-metre tunnel, to illicitly connect the cultivation to the electrical grid, according to a 3rd December statement.

The agents had been investigating an industrial warehouse for months after suspicions arose when the property showed no commercial activity.

During the search, agents discovered a perfectly equipped kitchen on the ground floor, where they stored a large quantity of food in refrigerators and freezers, as well as hygiene products, enough to last for several months without leaving the facility.
