An employee of a hi-tech production site in Kiryat Gat was charged this week with growing marijuana at his workplace and distributing it to fellow employees.

Kiryat Gat police station detectives launched an undercover investigation earlier in June in conjunction with the security branch of the production plant following suspicions that cannabis was being grown on site.

Police then arrested the 37- year-old suspect.

“During questioning he denied the suspicions, but we then searched his home, and discovered packages of marijuana ready for sale,” police said. “He then confessed, but claimed he was giving out the drug to friends, not selling it for profit.”

Police questioned several additional employees on suspicion of receiving the cannabis. The suspects were later charged with using drugs while at work.

The main suspect is under full house arrest.
