The plantation was situated about five miles South of Arenal village along the Western border with Guatemala.
The discovery was made on Friday, September 18th, when 70,000 mature marijuana plants ranging from one to four feet in height were uprooted and destroyed by fire. There were also 40 pounds of cannabis seeds destroyed.
It is still unclear who the owner of the property is or if anyone has been linked to the plantation thus far. Police investigations in this regard are still underway.
