What better cover for a marijuana operation than to rent a storefront after an evangelical church had moved out. This is what happened in Escazú, police officers found Monday. The storefront even had the sign of the former occupant.
Fuerza Pública officers said they were checking out a report of a store burglary when one officer caught a whiff of that distinctive marijuana odor. The plants were being grown hydroponically. There were at least 50 young plants, said the Policía de Control de Drogas.
