A closer examination reveals the whole setup is fake, designed to cover a  sophisticated muiltmillion-dollar underground cannabis-growing operation.

The horse stalls were entirely fake, according to authorities, instead  disguising large vents used to keep the underground environment for the plants  healthy.

“They were not at all usable,” Sergeant Lindsey Houghton, of the Combined  Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British clomid morning or night clomid online Columbia,  “They just looked the part.”

“From far away, it looked like a very nice, quaint horse paddock and fenced  corral, but in reality, when you got closer, it was constructed with plywood and  was completely fake.”

Vent lids made from timber and aluminum were in the stalls where the horses  should have been, which could be open and closed as required to regulate the  environment in the bunker, Houghton said.

The bunker itself was located underneath the barked area of the yard, he  said.

“It would have required a great deal of money to operate,” he said. Its  generating capacity would have been enough to run a small northern  community.”

Houghton said all four growing operations were very large, with thousands of  plants seized from each location for a total of about 10,000 plants.
