Abu Dhabi: Two farm workers arrested for growing over a dozen cannabis plants

Abu Dhabi Police arrested two men after over a dozen cannabis plants were found in their possession during a raid on a farm.

Abu Dhabi Police arrested two men after over a dozen cannabis plants were found in their possession during a raid on a farm.

Abu Dhabi Police stated that the 14 plants were being grown in an isolated area of the farm without permission from the owner.


They were being grown with the intention of selling, said the police officials.

Police further said that the arrested men were from Asia and worked on the farm but did not disclose their identity.

They did not state when the arrests were made and didn’t provide the farm’s location.

The director of the anti-narcotics division at Abu Dhabi Police, Brig Gen Taher Al Dhaheri, stated that the place was raided as per legal procedures, the men were arrested, and the plants were pulled up and seized.

Investigations disclosed that the farm’s owner didn’t have any knowledge as he didn’t come often to visit the farm, of which the two men took advantage and planted narcotic plants in an out-of-the-way part of the farm.

The senior officer asked farm owners to keep a close look over their workers and give them knowledge regarding the laws of the country.


He also asked farm owners to become more familiar with the plants that are being grown on their property.

Police also urged members of the public to report any suspicious activities at their nearest police station.

On the other hand, on Monday, July 18, Ras Al Khaimah Customs officers at the Al Dhara border captured over 29 kilograms of cannabis that was hidden in a vehicle attempting to enter the UAE from Musandam in Oman.

During a search of the vehicle, officers saw that some changes had been made to the spare tyre, and on inspection, they found 28 packets containing cannabis that were hidden professionally inside the tyre.
