So in Nashville, this guy had a secret passage from his garage that was hydrolically sealed to a cave under his house complete with a Hogan’s Heroes style escape hatch that came up under a rock.. You know, I wouldn’t want to get busted for the plants but I’d love the hidden access to a cave! How do these people get busted anyway? I guess maybe they were doing surveillance on the house and the guy gophered out his backyard.
This is how they grow it in Tennessee . This grow was underneath a
house in a cave. The entrance was through a secret hydraulic door in the
garage that led to a concrete ramp that went about 50 yards into the
ground. Inside the cave was living quarters and a secret escape hatch that
led you through a tunnel that exited via another hydraulic door that
opened up a rock on the outside. It was very elaborate. The set up
allowed them to harvest every 60 days which resulted in multi-million
dollar sales. One of the guys busted was living in a house on the water
in FL and had a nice yacht.
One of the agents here in Nashville worked on this for 5 years
before the warrant was finally served in December.
