    Police have arrested two individuals over the discovery of two large plantations of marijuana in Brussels, authorities announced Wednesday.

    According to reports, both plantations consisted of at least 234 marijuana plants, and police also seized cash, firearms, vehicles and other narcotics.

    The location of the plantations was not made public, but the discovery was made by the narcotics unit of the Brussels-Midi police zone, which is competent for the communes of Forest, Saint-Gilles and Anderlecht.

    Police units also seized €900 in cash, 2.7 grams of heroin, two small guns and a pump-action firearm.
