Judicial Police detain U.S. man for growing marijuana

June 13, 2013

Judicial Police agents on Wednesday arrested 56-year-old U.S. citizen at his home in Atenas in the province of Alajuela for possession of 35 marijuana plants.

Earlier this month, agents received confidential information that the suspect was growing marijuana both in his yard and inside his home.

During the operation, which took place at about noon, police found a controlled-climate room with lamps, fans, power supplies and plants.

Agents also seized 500 grams of marijuana, seeds and equipment used for the production of the drug.

The suspect was taken to the prosecutor’s office to be charged.
