You Won’t Believe What Cops Found in this House

Trousdale County, Tennessee — From the outside, this house looked like any other house in a well-to-do residential estate. But what police found inside is what makes it stand out from all other houses. Now known as Tennessee’s Pot Cave, the house was a facade designed to support a large scale cannabis growing operation.

According to police reports, there were over 1,000 plants in the basement of this house with some over 6 feet tall.

Police estimate the operation yielded 100 lbs of illegal herb every 2 months, and brought in over $3 million per year.

Police first got the tip off when an electric company worker showed up at the house unannounced to investigate a problem. The house was using massive amounts of electricity and causing constant power disruptions in the area.

The worker was chased off the property with a shotgun, who then reported the incident to local police. Cops have a keen sense when it comes to this sort of thing, so they obtained a warrant and conducted an early morning raid.

Here’s what they found…
