Law enforcers encountered over 500 cannabis plants in a semi-detached house on the Kasteelweg.
Police were alerted by local residents, who voiced complaints about the all-pervasive odour of marihuana.
Carol Vercarre of Halle-Vilvoorde prosecutors: “Local residents reported suspicious goings-on. When the police entered the property they encountered a cannabis farm containing over 500 plants. Two individuals were present at the property at the time and they were both arrested and will appear before a judge this Easter Monday”.
