Police Apprehend Finnish Nationals for Farming Cannabis
The South Police Prefecture announced today that it has apprehended two Finnish nationals suspected of raising 149 cannabis plants in a farmhouse in Viljandi County.
Last Thursday, police received a tip on cannabis cultivation activity at a farm in the Tarvastu municipality and immediately sent out officers to check the property. There they found a number of plant beds and pots containing cannabis, in addition to seeds, leaves and debris inside the house.
The two men, apprehended the same day, were 28 and 29-years-old. One had already been penalized for cultivating cannabis in Finland, while the other had no criminal record.
If convicted, the men could receive up to five years' imprisonment.
