Dutch police said Thursday they had arrested a woman in the port city of Rotterdam with 2,200 cannabis joints and 12 kilos (26 pounds) of soft drugs.

A statement said police went to the address looking for another man and noticed a strong smell of cannabis coming from a locked bedroom.

Once inside, they seized the joints and the other drugs, arresting the 37-year-old tenant.

Possession of small quantities of soft drugs is tolerated in the Netherlands.
