(Pahrump, NV)  — Authorities have discovered a marijuana grow house in the community of Pahrump.  Nye County sheriff’s officials raided the home last Friday, and found an underground tunnel that led to a high-tech growing area with water and power supplies.  Detectives found about 50 pounds of harvested pot plants, along with about 100 still-growing plants.  A suspect, 59-year-old Willi Wirz, was recently arrested in Nebraska for allegedly holding 30 pounds of pot.  Authorities say Wirz will be charged in the Pahrump case.
