Blackduck, Minnesota (AP) March 2011

Drug agents have uncovered 85 marijuana plants being grown under a garage floor in northern Minnesota.

Agents of the Paul Bunyan Drug Task Force raided a rural Blackduck home last week. They found the marijuana being grown in two large metal storage containers buried under the garage floor.

The hidden rooms were accessible only through a disguised trapdoor under a workbench in the garage.

Authorities are searching for the home’s occupant.

Leech Lake tribal police and Beltrami County sheriff’s deputies assisted.
