The Mossos d’Esquadra act before a surprising case
The Mossos d’Esquadra have arrested two individuals aged 27 and 29 as responsible for a cannabis plantation in Avinyonet de Puigventós, according to the police.
The incident took place when the two men called the emergency telephone to report a violent robbery. According to his account, three strangers armed with guns had entered to rob them.
When authorities arrived at the scene, they encountered an unexpected scene: the alleged victims were, in fact, responsible for the illegal planting of hundreds of cannabis plants.
A crime against public health that does not go unnoticed
The Mossos d’Esquadra proceeded to arrest the two men for a crime against public health. One of those involved, aged 29, already had a criminal record.
Those arrested appeared before the judicial authorities on Tuesday to give statements about the events that occurred.
Research in progress
At the same time, the Investigation Unit of the Figueres police station is carrying out an exhaustive search to identify and capture the three individuals who perpetrated the robbery.
On Wednesday, a search was carried out in the garden that had been raided with a court order. Unfortunately, only about fifty plants could be recovered.
