Romanian police near Bucharest have discovered six clandestine cannabis plantations where almost 8800 plants were grown. It is reported by Digi24. 

The clandestine plantations were discovered in the county of Dambovita, near Bucharest. 

During a search of a private house, police found six plantations equipped with ventilation, irrigation and heating systems, equipment for further processing and packaging of plants, as well as weapons. 

The police documented the criminal activity of 7 people suspected of forming an organised criminal group for drug trafficking and the risk of human trafficking. The 7 people were arrested for 30 days.

From the evidence provided, it became clear that in the period from January 2022 to 1 June 2024, an organised criminal group based on a pyramidal structure, coordinated by a leader, was created and operated in the Dambovita County for the purpose of growing, selling and transporting high-risk drugs (cannabis and cocaine), IGPR reports.

According to the investigation, the leader of the criminal group created a profile on an online communication platform for the group in order to sell drugs quickly and remain anonymous. He also coordinated and sold cannabis and cocaine through other suspects, and in the period from September 2023 to 1 June 2024, he installed and maintained a building located on his territory for growing cannabis with the support of the group members.

Earlier, The Gaze reported that in the Czech Republic, debate has begun on the need to test all members of parliament for drugs after the Czech Police Security Service found a piece of paper with traces of cocaine in the men's toilets of the House of Representatives last year. The police never found out who brought the drug into the toilet. Czech politicians are now accusing each other of drug use, and the president of the Pirates, Ivan Bartosz, has even called for mass testing of his own and opposition MPs.
