A cryptocurrency farm was found in a commercial building on Kempenbaan in Rijen on Wednesday. The tenant, a 37-year-old man from Tilburg, was arrested on suspicion of theft of electricity and money laundering, BN De Stem reports.

The police decided to look into the building due to its extremely high electricity consumption. "We were actually expecting to find a cannabis farm", a spokesperson said to the newspaper. Instead, officers found dozens of computers in the warehouse, all mining cryptocurrencies.
