NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — You might call it a marijuana mega mansion.
Police raided a five-floor commercial building in the Bronx Tuesday afternoon that was filled with marijuana plants from wall to wall.
The building, located on Morris Park Avenue, had nearly 800 plants, some measuring 7 feet.
Police called the operation a sophisticated pot factory that was cranking out millions of dollars worth of weed, 1010 WINS’ Al Jones reported.
1010 WINS’ Al Jones Reports Three people were arrested.
CBS 2′s John Slattery said there were no sleeping quarters inside, but the building fostered the perfect environment for growing the plants.
Slattery reported that inside there was an elaborate set-up of water and air filtration systems and that the drugs were allegedly packaged on the top floor.
Neighbors in the area said they were surprised and never suspected anything.

“It just looked like it was a mechanics every time I walked by,” said Ricardo Morales.
“That’s crazy…because I used to walk past this every single day. I live down the block on Garfield,” said Maria Candelaria. “Never even smelled nothing come out from this place.”
Police were removing marijuana from the building Tuesday evening as the suspects were being questioned

7.5 Million Dollar Pot Bust in NYC!

NEW YORK – Cops raided a New York apartment building Tuesday and found it had been turned into a pot farm.
Acting on a tip, police broke down the door at 610 Morri Park Avenue in The Bronx at 1:00pm local time and discovered a staggering 600 marijuana-growing pots. They filled all of the top four floors of the five-story building.
Officials estimated there was 1,500 pounds of pot growing in the building, and at $5,000 a pound, it had a street value of about $7.5 million.
Cops also found there had modifications to the ventilation of the building and other changes.
"It was like a pot farm in there," one law enforcement source said. "They were using enough electricity, grow lights and such to power an entire city block."
Three suspects in their 20s were arrested on drug dealing and drug possession charges.

It just pisses me off how nearly every news story about a bust starts out with some variant of that sentence, and how accurately it reflects the increasing militarization of our civilian police forces. "Those dangerous pot growers! We must charge in with our guns drawn, for teh safety of teh childrenz!!!"
