TWO PRISONERS on day-release from a German jail on Monday were caught red-handed tending their illegal cannabis crop in a nearby empty warehouse, according to German authorities.

German customs agents discovered the 1,200 cannabis plants in the warehouse in the western town of Moers and arrested the pair. The prisoners, who were on day-release to find jobs, were then escorted back to jail. It is believed that they were planning to export their harvest to the Netherlands.
