On Tuesday evening, police in Leeuwarden raided a cannabis grow house on Jentsjemar on the south side of Leeuwarden.
Omrop Fryslân reports that there were 250 plants found on site, which were grown with equipment powered by illegally tapped electricity. The plants and equipment were taken into police custody and destroyed.
The police also found 2,200 euros in cash at the grow house. A suspect arrested on suspicion of connection to the operations will appear in court on Wednesday.
Marijuana can be sold under strict conditions in the Netherlands, but growing it is even more carefully regulated. Although Dutch drug law permitted growing cannabis starting in 2017, anyone found growing more than five cannabis plants is subject to prosecution.
