The police has found a large cannabis nursery in a very unusual place. The nursery was found under a viaduct at the height of the Beatrix canal.
Employees of an engineering firm found the nursery during a routine inspection. They opened the entrance to the inside of the viaduct, and found the nursery.
As the entrance to the inside of the viaduct lays above water, police was present with a boat. An aerial platform was used to access the entrance.
The cannabis itself was no longer present. However there was space for about 500 planters. Electricity was taken illegally from a source from the A2, which lay over the viaduct.
