There were a few smaller fields found hidden between other plants and while the fields were destroyed, no one was arrested as they did not find any persons in the area.

This area has long been notorious, the spokesperson for the Division said, for both drug addiction as well as trafficking.

The real target of this raid was to find the drug agents who trade in this area. However after raiding many homes in the nearby villages nothing incriminating was found.
