NYC's Biggest Pot Farm Discovered: Cherry Factory Owner Was Running A "Breaking Bad" Style Drug Empire!
A cherry manufacturing king committed suicide in a Brooklyn factory after his business was exposed Tuesday as a “Breaking Bad”-style drug den. Investigators were searching for documents and questioning Mondella for about five hours when they came upon a flimsy-looking shelving system. Inspectors were sent to the Red Hook business about 8 a.m. to uncover alleged pollution in the waters near the cherry plant, investigators were hit by a faint smell of weed. After Mondella shot himself in the head, investigators were shocked to discover three bags holding about 100 pounds of pot and hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash stashed in the factory. In the space below the plant, they also found numerous high-end vehicles, including a Rolls-Royce, a Porsche and Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
