Police in separate raids recovered huge cannabis (marijuana) plants worth about EUR 10 thousand from Mikkeli area on Saturday and Sunday, said South Savo police on Tuesday.
 
Police also arrested two persons along with a huge amount of ready cannabis.
 
Sources said that the first drive took place on Saturday when police recovered more than 400 cannabis plants from the yard and back yard of a house while another team recovered some ready cannabis from another house of the area on Sunday.
 
“The huge amount shows that the cannabis was not planted in the house ordinarily,” Detective Chief Inspector of South Savo police, Marko Ijäs told STT, adding that about 10 kilograms of cannabis could be produced by the plants.
