Growing weed in a cold war bunker? How to grow weed? 3 men were growing weed in a nuclear bunker! This cold war nuclear bunker was a huge drug cannabis factory growing 4000 plants every 6 weeks in a Cold War Nuclear Bunker in Wiltshire. Weed farming with £250,000 of bootlegged electricity they grew marijuana in a old MOD war bunker!
Three men who grew cannabis worth millions of pounds in an abandoned Cold War nuclear bunker face jail after admitting conspiring to produce the drug. The astonishing haul was found during a midnight police raid in the former government bunker in Wiltshire.
Martin Fillery, 45, Plamen Nguyen, 27, and Ross Winter, 30, all pleaded guilty to conspiring to produce the class B drug when they appeared in court on Friday. In order to keep the factory up and running, they bypassed mains electricity into the site, bootlegging approximately £250,000 worth of electricity.
The 20-room building was originally built in the 1980s by the Ministry of Defence, and designed to be impenetrable to anyone without a secret key in order to protect government officials and dignitaries in the event of a nuclear attack.
Police said virtually every room was converted ‘for the wholesale production of cannabis’ and there were also living quarters for growers.
In order to catch them, officers had to stake out the RGHQ Chilmark bunker, near the village of Chilmark, until three men left the building, when they were arrested and their keys used to gain entry. The site is no longer owned by the MoD, but the bunker is still intact and the nuclear blast doors were still in place making the site almost completely impenetrable.
The raid eventually happened on February 22 this year following an intelligence gathering operation. Over 4,000 cannabis plants were inside, and it took ten days to clear out afterwards. The trio appeared at Salisbury Crown Court and will be sentenced on August 11.
In addition to admitting charges of drugs conspiracy and abstracting electricity, Fillery, of Ashcott in Bridgwater, Somerset, admitted a charge of possession of criminal property in relation to money laundering.
Police said he had a significant amount of assets relating to his criminality which, after his sentencing, will be subject to the proceeds of crime legislation. Nguyen and Winter – both of Bristol – admitted conspiring to produce class B drugs and abstracting electricity.
Detective Inspector Simon Pope, of Wiltshire Police, said: ‘This was an enormous discovery for our Local Priority Team – I believe it was the biggest cannabis factory we’ve ever had in Wiltshire and the South West region. ‘The isolated and secure nature of the location made the warrant particularly challenging. ‘The bunker itself had approximately 20 rooms inside over two floors, and almost every single room had been converted for the wholesale production of cannabis.’
‘In addition to the growing rooms, there were drying rooms, nurseries and living quarters for the growers – it was a sophisticated set up with an illegal connection to the mains electrical supply. ‘The lighting equipment alone seized from the site cost in the region of £140,000 and the setup was capable of producing a crop every 6 weeks.
‘In all it took approximately 10 days to completely search and clear the site.’ He added: I’m really pleased we have been able to dismantle such a large-scale organised operation running in rural Wiltshire – as a result we have stopped an enormous amount of illegal drugs from reaching the streets and causing harm to our communities.’
