Officers of the National Police General Directorate found a large and modern laboratory for marijuana cultivation and drugs production in the village of Rumyantsevo near Lukovit, northern Bulgaria. In a luxury house the police found numerous plants and a large amount of finished products.
Three men have been arrested.
The high-tech drug laboratory was found in a luxury private property in Rumyantsevo, explained District Prosecutor of Lovech Valentin Valkov.
“About a thousand plants were found in one of the buildings at different periods of growth. Neighbouring buildings were prepared to expand this production. A small amount of dry matter ready for market realization has also been found.
The worth of the found marijuana is estimated at over half a million levs.
