Six men were arrested on Friday morning on suspicion of growing cannabis and selling it in communities in the center and south of the country.

The men, aged between 23 and 49, were detained in a raid by the central division of the Tel Aviv police on several sites in Ramat Gan, Kiryat Ono and the moshavim Rintiya and Menuha. Three of the men are brothers.

Police confiscated 106 kilograms of cannabis ready for sale, as well as four vehicles.

In a separate raid in the center of the country, police discovered a caravan which the suspects are believed to have used to distribute the drugs and 430,000 shekels (about $107,000) in cash.

The suspects were due to be brought before the Tel Aviv Magistrates Court later on Friday for remand.

Police sources said that the idea to sell the cannabis from a caravan was inspired by the hit American TV series Breaking Bad," in which the two lead characters use a caravan to make crystal meth.
