Police bust underground drug bunker [NZ]

Police bust underground drug bunker
08 April 2005
stuff.co.nz

Police have uncovered a sophisticated indoor cannabis growing operation buried in a bunker beneath a garage at a house near Rotorua.

The discovery was made yesterday when police raided a house in the north-east of the city.

The bunker is a 6m long shipping container.

A massive hole has been dug to accommodate the container which has been covered by a layer of concrete.

A garage has been built on top of that.

Rotorua police became suspicious about the house when they were called there on Wednesday night by a security company who had gone to the property to check out a ringing burglar alarm.

While at the house the police smelled cannabis and heard the sound of fans operating. They tracked the sound to beneath the garage.

Teams of police from Rotorua and Hamilton raided the house early yesterday morning and discovered the fans were vents used to circulate air into the bunker to keep the cannabis crops alive.

In the corner of the garage police found an entry hole to the bunker about 1m square which was covered by boards and other material.

Detective Scott Thompson of the Rotorua police said someone had gone to a lot of work to hide the operation.

"Everyone who was there looked down the hole and thought 'you don't come across this every day'," he said.

The cannabis plants were removed but the total amount was yet to be counted.

A 34-year-old man has been charged with cultivating cannabis and possessing cannabis for supply. He was to appear in Rotorua District Court today.

The man's 32-year-old wife has also been interviewed by police.

They went to all that trouble making an underground grow area but didn't make it smell or noise proof?? Quiet fans and some carbon filters might have been a good investment :tongue:

Mahayana Buddhist tradition tells how Buddha lived on one hemp seed a day.
This was enough to sustain him during the six steps of asceticism leading to his Enlightenment.
In recent centuries, higher doses have been favoured.

What I would like to know is how you explain something like that to your neighbors during the construction process. I think it would raise at least some suspicions.
