This tiny suburb in Miami might look like your typical rich neighborhood, but it was anything but normal. Outside, the community seemed like a peaceful and tranquil place to raise your children. However, the neighborhood hid a dirty secret that blew the minds of local police and millions of people worldwide.
On one fateful day, the local Miami police received an informant’s tip about a certain house around the neighborhood. Since many people found the tiny suburb extremely shady, the police did not hesitate to act on the tip. Soon enough, they conducted a house raid.
The suburban house looked extremely mundane and unsuspicious from the outside. The authorities weren’t prepared to discover the secret hidden just beyond facade of a typical American suburb. Once inside, the house looked just like any other typical home. However, the police were convinced that something was amiss.
When they came upon the master’s bedroom, all of their suspicions were confirmed. Inside the bedroom was an oddly-placed white crib and upon removal, the authorities discovered a hidden trap door underneath. Inside were pounds after pounds of marijuana!
All in all, police were able to confiscate a total of $108,000 or drugs and drug paraphernalia. But it didn’t end there. Just down the street, the authorities received another call to inspect another house. A couple lived with their two teenage daughters.
At first, nothing seemed off with the house – much like the one before it. That was the authorities’ impression until they saw the upside-down pool. It turns out that a hidden laboratory lay underneath the family’s backyard! Unlike the first house, this one actually had its own electrical system.
The minor daughters were taken away from the custody of the parents, while the parents were incarcerated with a bond of $25,000. As if that’s not disturbing enough, the police noted how suspiciously unhelpful and quiet the neighbors were. They suspect for sure that more secrets were hiding in that tiny suburb.
