Police found 593 marijuana plants growing inside a five-story building near the Bronx Zoo on Tuesday and arrested three Bronx men for running a massive drug ring.

The suspects — 24-year-old Brian Munoz, 25-year-old Diego Reyes and 23-year-old Victor Reyes — were charged with criminal possession of marijuana and criminal use of drug paraphernalia.

Authorities say the three suspects ran a "sophisticated operation" that took up all five floors at 610 Morris Park Avenue, and the building had a watering system, electrical system, carbon dioxide system and a ventilation system to help the high-grade marijuana grow.

Marijuana, Bronx, of course its beaners. Criminal use of drug paraphernalia? Were they shoving bongs up people's rectums? Bullshit charge imo. Let 'em go if it's bullshit. Who's getting hurt?

I love how everyone in the neighborhood is pretending that they did not know what was going on. Everyone knows that there was drugs or shady shot in the building, they just don't want to be killed.

No pics of their set up? I guess for an indoor grow this is big. Small crop in these parts.
Small for around here also. They had a series of fields about an hour from my house that contained over 100,000 plants in 2007. 500 plant indoor grows are not terribly uncommon either.

The bud probably retails for $20 a gram. You do the math on five hundred pounds...

End that's how they'll figger out the "street value"of the bust.

500 plants isn't really that massive, I'm sure they're counting all the one-inch seedlings in that number too.

In hindsight they probably should have joined Mayors Against Illegal Guns and gotten a pass on their felonious acts.

You live in Washington, which isn't fair.

Send some of that medical cannabis to NJ! Lots of patients with no pot here. I don't think there's even one seed in the ground here in the "Garden State"

I have a bad feeling that NJ's dispenseries will be growing dirt weed and patients will still need to support black market operations like these to get quality cannabis. NJ passed the law TWO YEARS AGO and not one patient even has a card yet, let alone any cannabis. How hard is it to make up cards for patients? They need to stop arresting patients in NJ. I'm surprised NY doesnt have a medical marijuana law and NJ does (well kinda)

you can bet on that, most likely they were using a "sea of green" technique, figure 150 plants flowering, 150 or so in vegetative state then the rest as clones and mothers, maybe a few extraneous ones used for research and some product in drying..... hence 5 floors, what a fucking waste of resources, just fucking end prohibition and be done with it.
