Google Earth helps Swiss police find "marijuana plantation"


Zurich (Switzerland) – Swiss police reported today that they happened across a “large marijuana plantation” while using Google Earth. The find resulted in a bigger investigation that ultimately led to the arrest of 16 people and a seizure of 1.2 tons of marijuana valued at $780,000.

The marijuana plantation was nearly two acres in size, hidden inside a false field of corn. Said Norbert Kossner, the head of Zurich’s police specialist narcotics unit, “It was an interesting chance discovery.”
