According to the MSP, members of PCD, with some help from the SVA, GFP and the UIP, were able to search out and destroy yet another a marijuana plantation in Costa Rica’s Southern Zone. The most recent of which was discovered housed inside of a sustainable solar-powered hydroponic lab positioned on the side of a mountain in Osa County, Puntarenas.
According to the Ministry of Security, the eco-friendly operation was easily identified during an aerial flyover due to the its modern construction which included special tarps and solar panels, as well as batteries used to store the solar energy.
The laboratory was just one of 21 such operations recently discovered by drug enforcement agents, who have destroyed 116,959 marijuana plants since raids in the area began just ten days ago. So far this year, Public Security authorities have eradicated 950,706 of the narcotic producing plants.
