Czech police have arrested ten people who manufactured and smuggled large quantities of marihuana into neighbouring states. The group operated three plantations near Prague, from which the police confiscated over 1,000 marihuana plants and over sixty kilograms of marihuana. One of the gang’s couriers was arrested at the Czech-German border with 30 kilograms of marihuana in his possession. Another was arrested in Bratislava with 15 kilograms of the drug on his person. The suspects face sentences of 10 to 15 years if found guilty.
