Carinthian police have arrested two men and one woman who were operating an indoor cannabis plantation in their apartment in the district of Spittal an der Drau.

In cooperation with the Radenthein police inspectors, the detective service of Spittal an der Drau discovered the grow-room with 30 marijuana plants, as well as smoke-ready herbal cannabis and other smoking paraphernalia.
