Sderot police uncovered an unprecedented "hydroponic" laboratory containing 400 marijuana plants during a raid on a home in the southern city in the early hours of Thursday. The find was made at a two-story home on the outskirts of the city, better known for its constant struggle with Gazan rockets, where police found five rooms refurbished to serve as a professional grow house.

 

 

As well as the plants, police confiscated large quantities of fertilizer, irrigation and ventilation systems, heat lamps, and professional lighting equipment.

"Hydroponic" refers to the growing method of this particular type of marijuana, in which the plants are not rooted in the ground. According to police, this is the fourth lab bust in the southern district in the last week alone.

 

Southern District police claim the trend of residential growing operations is on the rise: "The busts in Israel in general and in the south in particular are the result of intelligence activity."
