On Monday, police responding to a house fire in Waldbillig were met with an unexpected turn of events that resulted in the arrest of the two inhabitants.

The Waldbillig fire brigade successfully brought the fire under control, and one person, a visitor affected by the incident, received medical attention at a local hospital for a check-up.

Upon arriving at the scene, the police uncovered more than just the aftermath of a fire — they stumbled upon an illegal cannabis plantation within the premises. Officers at the scene ended up seizing over 10 kg of cannabis.

The public prosecutor's office issued orders for the arrest of the two residents. The individuals were promptly brought before the examining magistrate and subsequently taken into custody.
