Prosecutors have asked a judge at the Magistrate’s Court in Jerusalem to extend the remand of a minor and an adult who were arrested last Thursday during a raid by police detectives on an indoor marijuana farm and laboratory in a residential building in Beitar Illit, pending submission of an indictment in the case.
One of the two suspects was a resident of the Orthodox Jewish community, located in Judea. On Sunday, a second minor was also arrested in connection with the case.
Police seized about 50 adult marijuana plants, fertilizer products, fans, transformers, air conditioners and lighting equipment during their search.
“The Israel Police continues its overt and covert activity all the time, in the framework of its uncompromising war against the export, import and trafficking of drugs distributed among the population and harming the quality of life of the residents,” said the police spokesperson.
