The specialized police operation to counteract the cultivation and distribution of narcotic substances was held yesterday on the territory of Veliko Tarnovo and Gorna Oryahovitsa.

The operation was carried out by officers of the "Counteracting Crime Victims" Sector at the Department of Military Investigation - Veliko Tarnovo and their colleagues from the University of Veliko Tarnovo under the supervision of the Prosecutor's Office. Property searches were carried out in Veliko Turnovo, G.

In the course of the investigative action in a dwelling in the district town, police officers found a plant for growing marijuana, fertilizers, soil mixes, 90 pots of sown plants such as hemp, and 1200 grams of drying leaf, which in field drug tests responded to cannabis.
