A young man has been arrested for cheekily growing cannabis plants on his grandparents’ graves – which resulted in police raiding his home and finding even more incriminating evidence of drug dealing.
The police said they received a tip-off about the cannabis plants from a member of the public in the village of Yukari Yenice in the district of Dazkiri in the Turkish province of Afyonkarahisar on 12th July.
The police arrived at the local cemetery and sure enough found 26 cannabis plants rooted in the graves of Abdulkarim and Fadime Arikan.
The police started looking into possible suspects and investigated the grandson of the deceased for illegally growing cannabis plants.
Officers searched the home of the grandson, identified as 29-year-old C.G., who lived with his father G.G., 56, the son-in-law of the deceased couple.
During the raid, the police reportedly seized 587 grammes of methamphetamine, 62 cannabis plants, 54 grammes of cannabis bud, 11 grammes of resin cannabis, and one precision scale.
The police arrested C.G and his father on charges of illegally producing and dealing drugs.
The pair are currently being held in police custody as the investigation continues.
