MASSIVE POT FACTORY FOUND
IN TUNNEL IN WALES
Recently in North Wales, police were tipped off about a legal mushroom farm.
They arrived at the location which was located deep inside old abandoned railway tunnels. They were aware that this was a legal operation housing a mushroom farm in the underground tunnels. What they were called about had nothing to do with the mushrooms. Police raided the railway tunnels and found huge steel doors, a secret entrance, and gates which lead to something very serious.
They found 5 secret growing rooms, one of which a street value of over $373,000 dollars. The combined value of all five rooms equals to be over $3,315,000 dollars! During the drug bust, four men were taken into custody, all of which plead guilty.
The abandoned railway tunnels served as a perfect secret place with ideal conditions to grow the class B drug in North Wales.
The people who were caught, arrested, and charged are not the people behind the operation. They never found the ones responsible for funding the drug operation. They were simply employees of a legitimate mushroom business as well as the illegal marijuana grow operation. Authorities found 1,207 plants in various stages of growth in the 5 grow rooms.
They also found 4 large irrigation rooms and a substation that powered the operation. Roads were rebuilt for use and huge steel doors were installed. This was no small venture. Police say that this was one of the best designed and constructed drug operations they have ever come across.
Clancy's comment: Mm ... a great idea has now gone up in smoke.
