Indonesian police have destroyed nine hectares of marijuana plants that were ready to be harvested in Polo village, Lamtemteuba according to a report by kompas.com on Sunday (Aug 28).
Aceh Police spokesman Goenawan said dozens of police officers searched the Seulawah hillside for two hours before discovering marijuana growing at two separate locations, spanning two and seven hectares respectively.
"At the first point, there was a two hectare marijuana field about three months old with the height of the plants reaching 1.5 metres. While at the second point, there was a seven hectare marijuana field about six months old with the height of the plants reaching three metres," said Goenawan.
The police seized some plants as evidence and destroyed the remainder by burning them at the location, the report said.
No details were available on the owner and the farmer of the plantations.
