The officials of the narcotics department in Rosenheim did not have an everyday task.
In the apartment of a 35-year-old they came across a huge marijuana plantation.
Rosenheim - After intensive investigations by the Rosenheim criminal police, the officers have now hit a drug dealer ring.
Already at the end of January, the law enforcement officers broke into an apartment in the municipality of Riedering, armed with a search warrant.
But they probably hadn't expected such a large amount of marijuana to be found there.
Search of the apartment in Rosenheim: In addition to cannabis, the police also found a lot of cash
The drug investigators of the Rosenheim police made their way to the apartment of a 35-year-old from Riedering at the end of January.
With the help of a search warrant, they were able to gain quick and legal access to the apartment.
What they found there is not commonplace even for experienced police officers.
They came across a highly professional marijuana plantation, the police wrote in a press release.
The plants were grown on three different floors.
The law enforcement officers were able to secure 240 plants in total.
They also found over 60 kilograms of freshly harvested cannabis and around 28,000 euros in cash.
The officers were also able to confiscate extensive equipment for rearing.
The 35-year-old alleged operator of the plantation was provisionally arrested and brought before an investigating judge.
He has been in custody since then.
Police arrest four suspected dealers
In the course of their investigations, the police officers from the narcotics commissioner's office in cooperation with the Traunstein public prosecutor's office came across four middlemen.
The men are between the ages of 29 and 35.
They all come from the Rosenheim and Riedering area.
They have now been arrested and an arrest warrant has been issued for them.
Three of them are in different prisons.
The fourth dealer was released under strict judicial orders.
The prosecutors from Traunstein recently had another interesting case on their desks.
A businessman was cheated out of a high six-figure amount.
