Police seize 120 marijuana plants from Yokosuka residence

Kanagawa Prefectural Police have arrested a 43-year-old man after more than 120 marijuana plants were found in a residence in Yokosuka City, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Dec. 27).

At around 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday, officers entered the two-floor residence rented by Daisuke Furuya and seized 124 plants from rooms on both floors.

Furuya, who has been accused of cultivation of marijuana for the money-making purposes, partially denies the allegations. “I rented the residence and raised the plants, but making money was not my intention,” the suspect was quoted by Tobe Police Station.
