- Cannabis plants found in French prison garden (23 Aug 12)
The raids Monday on the warehouse in Essoyes and the ex-bakery in Virey-sous-Bar -- two villages a few kilometres apart in north-central France -- followed the arrests of three men in the Paris region, local police said.
The men were arrested after a three-month operation, police said.
The previous record seizure in France was of 700 plants discovered in February 2011 at a warehouse in La Courneuve outside Paris.
