Federal park police found half a million dollars of marijuana growing in a park. Really. There were over 200 mature plants, 5 feet high (ha!), in a secluded area of Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. Two middle-aged men were apprehended.

Newsday reports that police found $1.5 million of pot being grown hydroponically in Douglas Manor. Damn, maybe Gothamist need to relook at options for breaking even...

Other NY drug crime busts: Ecstasy, and heroin in jewelry and furniture.
