Taipei, Feb. 17 (CNA) A Canadian man was arrested Wednesday after police raided his home in Pingtung County and found dozens of marijuana plants under cultivation there, the Pingtung County Police Bureau said.
The 37-year-old man also had equipment to make marijuana cigarettes, some of which were also found during the raid, police said.
The total value of the marijuana products found at the man’s home in southern Taiwan was around NT$640,000 (US$19,230), according to police.
The raid was carried out based on an investigation following a tip-off about two months ago that the unemployed man was running a marijuana business from his rented home in Neipu Township, police said. [FULL STORY]
