There's a What?

Today the Tribune reported that the police raided a grow house in Tampa. But that's not what caught my eye. It was that the grow house was hidden in an old Army Air Corps underground ammunition bunker, which is now evidently part of somebody's yard!

The house is in the Drew Park neighborhood, east of the airport and west of the stadium. During World War II, Drew Park was part of Drew Field, an Army Air Corps training base.

Every house has a story. Some are more eventful than others.

  1. Interesting, I wonder how far that network reaches, and if its interconnected with others. I wouldn't think that such a bunker would be possible in Florida, but maybe the water table is deeper up there than south Florida. Finally, I wonder what sort of equipment was used to catch them, don't they use heat sensors, but I would be surprised if they could penetrate the ground in this case.
