Anti-narcotics officers have discovered an illegal plantation with almost 2,000 cannabis trees in a remote area near Tragana in Fthiotida, central Greece, the Greek Police (ELAS) said on Monday.
The operation, which took place early Friday morning, was assisted by a helicopter and sniffer dogs.
A total of 1,900 cannabis trees, ranging from 1.5 to 4 meters in height, were found and uprooted while materials and equipment to water the crops were also confiscated.
Police said the water was supplied from a source 2 kilometers away with plastic pipes.
A specially designed observatory near the plantation was also discovered.
The street market value of the plantation yield was estimated at 7 million euros.
