Google Earth finds Swiss drugs farm
Google tools like Google Earth and Maps are becoming more useful by the day. Only a few weeks ago a criminal on the run was caught and now the Swiss police found a drug farm by using Google Earth.
According to Zurich’s head of police's narcotics unit, Norbert Klossner, the marijuana was hidden inside a field of corn. Two farmers who were suspects already were caught when the police stumbled across a gigantic marijuana plantation.
The plantation was almost two acres big. Apparently the farmers already had sold up to seven tons hashish and marijuana between 2004 and 2008. Sixteen people are questioned.
