QCOSTARICA – A group of yet to be unidentified drug traffickers used the facade of an evangelical church, in the centre of Escazú, as a hydroponic laboratory to grow marijuana.

According to the Ministerio de Seguridad Publica (MSP), the property had been used as a church for several months, but the new tenants – the drug traffickers – didn’t bother to take the down the sign.
