Police find underground marijuana farm in Memphis
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Police found an underground marijuana farm hidden under a home on a quiet street near the University of Memphis.
The Commercial Appeal reported that officers raided the home Monday after a tip and found a 50-foot secret tunnel under the one-story brick home that led to a work area complete with a ventilation system, fans and air conditioning.
Officers seized about $150,000 worth of marijuana, including 30 pounds of processed marijuana and 23 plants, along with scales, fertilizer and grow lights.
Police have issued an arrest warrant for the man living there, 68-year-old Bobby Brock.
