Authorities in Vienna have announced the discovery of a marijuana farm housed in a warehouse near a police dog center. The Associated Press reports that once one of the dogs caught wind of the weed, Austrian police then noticed a man entering the building with a hose. Following a search of the building, officers found more than 700 plants inside, and another 32 sacks of deep-frozen marijuana at the man’s apartment — though he is denying any wrongdoing. Police suspect the man didn’t know who his nosy neighbors were because he was from out of town.
