Bronx Apartments Converted to $7.5M Pot Farm



Cops raided a Bronx apartment building on Jan. 31 and found it had been turned into a pot farm. Acting on a tip, police broke down the door and discovered 600 marijuana-growing pots. They filled 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 modifications to the ventilation of the building and other changes. Three suspects in their twenties were arrested on drug dealing and drug possession charges.
