Police in Rishon Lezion on Sunday night watched the FIFA World Cup Final between Argentina and France on a TV at an illegal drug-growing lab after raiding an illicit cannabis grow operation, according to Israeli media.
The police arrived at the site after someone called them about a strong smell of gas emanating from an apartment building.
In the building, they found hundreds of cannabis seedlings being grown in an illegal hydroponics operation, in addition to equipment used to cultivate the cannabis.

Argentina beat France with a score of 4-2 after penalty kicks, according to Reuters.
“After we finished collecting the marijuana, we sat down to watch the end of the game,” one of the officers said, according to N12. “We were very excited that we didn't miss the most important moments—it doesn't happen every day. It was an experience. We found the hydro lab and also got to see the final.”
