(August 13th, 2012) A tunnel built beneath central Rome during the fascist era of Benito Mussolini
has been found to house a flourishing cannabis factory.
Police launched a raid of the tunnel on Monday, after smelling a strong odour of marijuana around its entrance in southeastern Rome. Underground passages in the area are commonly used to grow mushrooms but police discovered this farm was also growing rows of marijuana plants hidden behind an initial section of mushrooms.
Video footage released by the police showed the marijuana cultivation site stretching along the 4,000 square metre tunnel, as well as stacks of bags filled with cannabis, weighing and processing equipment, artificial lights to dry the leaves. Police said they confiscated 340 kilos of the drug worth an estimated 3 million euros. The 57-year-old owner of the farm has been arrested.
