The police also reported that it’s currently investigating a number of spots that are suspected to be the location for seeding process.

Chief of Cianjur police Pol. Grand Commissioner Adjutant Doni Hermawan said police found the cannabis farm after receiving reports from the public, and the first farm area found was located just two kilometers away from a pathway that’s regularly passed by locals.

“Perpetrators intentionally planted the cannabis on an area that’s rarely visited by people; they even planted it on the steep slope, so it could hardly be seen. A few hundred stems were even planted near the Gunung Padang Megalithic site that’s far from the public,” Hermawan said on Tuesday, June 28, as reported by Antara.

The majority of the farm were located in areas owned by state-owned enterprise Perhutani, and it’s currently unknown how many people were involved in creating the cannabis farm.

The police said cannabis in seven farm areas are ready to be harvested next month. It has also warned the public to report any suspicious activity, so the perpetrators can be arrested soon.

“Report immediately if there’s any suspicious activity near where [people] live. We will hunt the cannabis farmers until they’re arrested,” Hermawan affirmed.
