Costa Rican police destroy marijuana plants hidden in fruit fields
Costa Rica's Drug Control Police (PCD) and the Public Force have found 367.460 marijuana plants hidden in a passionfruit plantation in the Talamanca region.
In a release, the Ministry for Public Security (MSP) said a new technique had been employed to hide the plantations, placing a nets over the marijuana plants and then building a series of trellises over them for passion fruit plants so the illicit plants are almost unnoticeable.
The marijuana plants were destroyed after the discovery was made.
In the year to date, Colombian authorities have eradicated 1.1 million marijuana plants.
