SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade Police have raided and shut down an underground hydroponics laboratory that was so hazardous that detectives say it could have triggered an underground explosion in a Southwest Miami-Dade neighborhood.

Three people including the homeowner have been arrested on charges including trafficking in marijuana at the home on Southwest 301st Street near the Florida Turnpike.

“This is terrible,” said neighbor Nico Meseses. “This was right next to my door.”

His wife Aurea Meseses told CBS4’s Peter D’Oench, “It’s terrible because kids live around here.”

“It’s scary,” said neighbor Teresa Gomez. “I am freaked out.”

“It makes us not want to live here anymore,” said another neighbor Nicole Danford. “It makes us feel unstable and unsafe.”

Police also released dramatic video from their narcotics bureau showing how the lab had an open hatch leading to an underground crawl space and 82 marijuana plants worth $144,000.
