British Police Discover Secret Bitcoin Farm in Search for Drug Shop

Police in the West Midlands in the west of England during the search for a drug lab found a cryptocurrency mining center that stole electricity “for thousands of pounds”.

With the help of a drone, law enforcement officers noticed increased thermal activity near the local industrial zone. The police also found out that the territory is regularly visited by “suspicious persons”.

They assumed they had found a marijuana farm and obtained a search warrant. Instead of drugs, there were “about a hundred” computers inside.

“This is not what we expected at all! She had all the signs of a cannabis farm, ” said Police Sgt. Jennifer Griffin.

No one was found in the room, but law enforcement officers will continue to investigate. All equipment has been confiscated.

Earlier, a miner from Syktyvkar stole electricity for 5.5 million rubles.

Recall that since the beginning of 2021, Rosseti estimated the damage from illegal mining at almost 5 million rubles.
