Police are investigating a marijuana growing operation in Yuen Long after a raid on a pig farm that had been converted into a plant to make drugs. Officers from New Territories North raided the farm in Shung Shan San Tsuen in Pat Heung late on Tuesday night after receiving a tip-off. As police entered the abandoned farm at 9pm, they found 83 pots of cannabis growing up to 1.2 metres high. They arrested a 27-year-old man at the scene for cultivating cannabis. An initial investigation revealed that the farm had been operated around-the-clock for two months and supplied drugs to vice dens in Yuen Long and Kowloon.
