Fuerza Pública officers said they received a tip that led to the apprehension of a U.S. couple on marijuana growing allegations.
Officers said they found a hydroponics setup at Finca Tierras Nativas de Tempate in Santa Cruz, Guanacaste. They detained a man with the last name of Whitworth and a woman with the last name of Olszewski.
Police said they arrived with a search warrant and prosecutors. They said they found 45 plants in a house and later located a complete hydroponics lab in a nearby storage unit. There they found 68 small plants and 28 plants in individual pots. The storage unit was air conditioned.
