Rooftop weed plantation revealed during Spain’s La Vuelta cycle race coverage

BayRadio | September 4, 2019

The growers of a marijuana plantation on the rooftop of an apartment in Catalonia have been rumbled after viewers spotted the greenery in aerial footage of Spain’s Vuelta cycle race.
The crop was revealed as a helicopter hovered over the building in the Catalan town of Igualada recording live footage of the final kilometre of the eighth stage of the race.
Viewers reported the sighting to the regional Mossos d’Esquadra who found 40 individual plants on the rooftop but no arrests were made as the growers had reportedly “left the property in a hurry”.
