Amantea, cultivated drugs in the backyard: discovered and arrested by the police


By John

The Carabinieri of the Compagnia di Paola are continuing the tight controls to repress the crimes inherent in the production and dealing of narcotic substances on the Tyrrhenian coast of Cosenza. After the plantations destroyed in recent days in the impervious mountain areas of Cetraro and San Lucido, the soldiers of the Amantea Station have found a cultivation directly in the urban center of the municipality of Nepeti, surprising a man fertilizing the plants.

The 540 hemp shrubs were contained in plastic and concrete pots in the internal courtyard of the house. In the house, the Carabinieri found some twigs already drying and cellophane bags containing small quantities of the substance. Everything was seized for subsequent analysis.

The activities are coordinated by the Public Prosecutor of Paola Dr. Ernesto Sassano who ordered the translation of the arrested person to the prison prison of Paola.
