Major Algarve Cannabis bust

GNR police have arrested a 38-year-old Portuguese man believed to be “one of the main cannabis growers of Loulé”.

An investigation led police to the man’s house in Sítio do Pinheiro, where he was found to be running a “complex lab” in which he grew his own cannabis plants.

GNR confiscated over 150 cannabis plants as well as 5,298 grams of the drug ready to sell.
