The cave had it all, everything Fred Strunk and his work crews needed to grow 100 pounds of marijuana every two months. Row after row of white-bright grow lights were powered by "free" electricity via an illegal splice into utility lines. An indoor irrigation system was nearly an engineering marvel. A ventilation system controlled humidity, while a security system featured a bank-vault-like entrance, with security cameras placed everywhere. Strategically located were escape hatches should lawmen come knocking. And there was the cave itself, a rock fortress shielding the illegal activity. Strunk's pot harvests, without a doubt, replaced tobacco and vegetables as Trousdale County's biggest cash crop, investigators said.

Weld the door that leads from the basement to the house shut, then open up a techno nightclub called "The Underground."
