A cannabis plantation on Hoofdstraat in Kaatsheuvel caused quite a bit of damage to the Zeeman store located beneath it during the early hours of Thursday morning. The owners of the textile store arrived to find the store flooded and covered with parts of the ceiling, the Telegraaf reports.

The fire brigade was called in to the store around 7:30 a.m. on Thursday. When they arrived, water was still seeping down the store's walls. The building's electricity was switched off.

The police and fire brigade quickly identified the source of the flooding. They found a leaking cannabis plantation on one of the upper floors of the building. So far no arrests were made.

The police called in a specialized company to clear away the cannabis plantation.
