Police seize 1,400 marijuana plants worth millions

Police seize 1,400 marijuana plants worth millions

EPSOM, N.H. --Police said they shut down what might have been the largest indoor marijuana operation in state history, seizing nearly 1,400 plants potentially worth over $4 million from a house.

"This is probably one of the largest, if not the largest we've seen in state history," state police Maj. David Kelley said.

No one has been charged, but the investigation is continuing.

Police said the Epsom house was bought 10 days ago and was completely converted to house the growing operation. Police video shows no furniture in the place, but investigators found bails of dirt and gallons of fertilizer. The marijuana was seized Thursday.

The basement was outfitted with a customized ventilation and electrical system that was diverting power to supply a ceiling filled with 1,000-watt lights, police said. The wiring blew a nearby transformer that ultimately led authorities to the operation.

"Every time (utility workers) had it repaired, it would blow again, so they traced a short back to a particular residence and found at the residence the power had been bypassed," Kelley said.

When Epsom police were called to investigate a theft of electrical services, they discovered the operation, officials said.

Police said the basement was set up to handle as many as 4,000 plants.

The plants police confiscated were small, but police said they would command millions of dollars when mature, police said.

"Over 1,400 plants with a street value of $4.7 million," Kelley said. "Tools, equipment, lights, electrical equipment, fertilizer -- a massive operation for this particular grower."

the house was bought 10 days ago? 4.7 million dollars for seedlings??? I don't see them transfering 1400 large plants in the first 10 days of purchase of the house. Don't they realize they make theirselves look stupid posting such large street values.

They always do that shit too. That's why I always doubt the infamous acid bust that took out "95% of the US's LSD" or whatever the numbers. Cops are stupid.

Yeah, everybody wants cops to be complete idiots but that doesn't always happen.


Can you really get over $3000 worth of pot from one plant, though?

Three grand worth of pot from one plant would require the convergence of many factors working in your favor but it could be done. Having excellent growing skills would be a must, living in a college town with an extremely affluent student population would be a boon to your enterprise, and most importantly‚Ķ great skills as a true salesman, the kind of guy who can sell an 1/8 for a C-Note by tossing around fancy sounding names like white widow, blue moonshine or whatever.  :rolleyes:

lol they're all soil and could you imagine transplanting those ones into larger pots, damn that would be a lot of freaking work. lol working on such a bulk means he probably wouldnt have had nearly enough effort/time to squeeze $3000 out of each plant, and that's only if they're all 100% female and has no parasite problems, yo

but seriously come on!

and with those numbers its more like $3357 per plant
seriously who'd get an average of $3357 per plant, indoors, with that kind of setup?

> seriously who'd get an average of $3357 per plant

The courts don't care... they claim a plant is worth a pound of product regardless of size, health, sex, or age of the plant. So, 1400 plants at 16oz per plant is 22,400 oz, or aprox $210 per oz.
