Man gets marijuana surprise

Lod resident goes away for three months, stunned to discover home turned into marijuana nursery

A Lod resident who left his apartment for three months was stunned to discover that his home was turned into a marijuana nursery in his absence.


The man, an ultra-Orthodox individual with no criminal record, quickly filed a complaint with police over the unexpected discovery. Authorities are currently attempting to identify the "temporary tenants" who used the apartment to grow the illicit drug.

The apartment owner recently bought the property on King Solomon Street in Lod, just east of Tel Aviv, and planned to rent it out. However, after potential tenants showed little interest, the man left it empty for the time being.


On Wednesday, the man arrived in the apartment and was surprised to discover that his lock was changed. After a locksmith broke into the home, the changed lock surprise paled in comparison to what the man found inside – namely, marijuana seedlings draped in tin foil placed on the floor, with neon lights place above them in order to facilitate their growth.


Police officers working on the case are currently working to identify the marijuana growers with the help of other residents in the building.
