When a Business Posing as a Furniture Store, Goes Wrong.

To some this might a very serious issue but to me its funny, strategic and bad at the same time. Earlier this month, the Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team (MET) had cracked down and undercover Marijuana Farm on the 22nd of this month in Gilroy, Calif.

MET were able to serve a warrant to the never open, always closed “furniture” thats not for sale store to find a suspect and a pot farm that had “over 1,000 marijuana plants growing, 50 pounds of processed marijuana,” according to FoxLA.  The estimated street value of all the marijuana that was found, totaled to over 2 million dollars.

What I find funny yet strategic was the fact that the people who were running this buisness covered the up the pot farm with the “furniture” store. I wonder if it ever crossed their mind if by having the store closed all the time would make people question that business? I don’t condone any of this, this is absolutely bad especially with another issue/hazard that was brought to the atteniton.

The suspect that was arrested on the scene had been stealing $80,000 worth of electricity as well as putting the building at risk of a bad fire by having done wiring in a way where it was not following electrical code.

According to Fox LA, Officials charged 39-year old Phuc Nguyen with illegal pot cultivation, theft of utilities, and won’t be released unless he meets bail of $200,000.

Aside from seizing the cultivation, the Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team has also arrested 20 people who are possibly involved with the operation as well as confiscated 3 firearms. More on this article can be found at Fox LA’s website, visit myfoxLA.
