July 1, 2005 - wfmynews2.com

According to a news release, officers found the drugs in a chicken house off Zion Church Road.

Authorities also siezed 184 1,000-watt bulbs, 180 1,000-watt transformers/capacitors, 151 Marijuana Growing Lights, approximately 95 gallons of liquid plant food and various electrical items, which were believed to have been used in this grow operation.

Staley, NC -- Authorities in Staley were able to sniff out a marijuana growing operation in Randolph County thanks to a "strange" smell.

On Thursday, the Staley Fire Department received a call about a possible fire at a home on Zion Church Road.

When they arrived they found a downed power line at a chicken house located on the property. Firefighters also detected a strange odor coming from the chicken house and contacted the Randolph County Sheriff's Office.

A search of the building turned up 603 marijuana plants, with an estimated street value of $603,000.

Deputies arrested three men in connection with the grow operation.

The accused are facing trafficking and conspiracy charges. Hoang Long Nguyan, Lam Van Huynh, Anthony Bui are currently in the Randolph County Jail under a $750,000 Bond.

wow a grand a plant, they must be made of GOLD



"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."

A 180,000 watt grow op in America? :lol: That "downed power line" was probably melted.

Either they paid around a $10,000 power bill every month, had 50 generators going, or they tapped (or tried to tap) into that power line.

I bet that's why the power line was down.

Through the excercise of patience, one may learn humility..

Smoke plenty of green, and eat fungus!!!!
