marijuanaPOLICE have detained two people for allegedly cultivating 23kg of marijuana in La Linea.

Suspicions were raised after two men, 23 and 24, were seen acting strangely in Calle Alemania.

Officers then began surveilling them, and observed one heading to a garage in the back of a building. They followed the man and found 15 large containers filled with the drug.

The individuals were then immediately detained for allegedly committing a crime against public health.
