40-year-old LSD stash hidden in Welsh village being guarded by police
Geo cache, LSD stash!
Dyfed-Powys police are currently patrolling Carno, west Wales to ward off potential LSD pirates in search of a 40-year-old treasure.
In 1977 there was a massive raid of a mansion in Carno which uncovered a multimillion pound drug operation.
Classic of the 70’s, police found 1 million tabs of LSD and ingredients to make 6.5 million more at the location and speculate that it may have been supplying 90% of LSD in the UK.
40 years later, one of the detectives of the ’77 case believes that a portion of the supply may still be hidden in the area.
Author of Undercover: Operation Julie and former detective Stephen Bentley claims a statement from a former member of the drug gang indicates that part of the LSD stash is hidden in nearby woodland.
Because of this statement, Bentley is convinced that the stash is still there.
The original investigation of ’77- Operation Julie- ensued after a car crash involving one of the drug gang members unearthed a note with ingredients to make LSD.
Hundreds of police officers disguised as hippies and such descended upon the village to locate the factory.
Some disguised officers even fought with uniformed officers to cement their cover and locals suspected undercover officers to be part of a gay cult.
A spokesperson for the Dyfed-Powys police said: “Dyfed-Powys police are aware of the issue and are assessing the content of the disclosure. We will be checking the records we hold to establish whether or not matters raised warrant further investigation.
“In the meantime we will be making the current owners of Plas Llysyn aware of the disclosure and the potential for persons to visit the area in an attempt to locate the drugs. We will be providing them with reassurance through increased patrols.”
The LSD stash may see people flocking to Carno in search of this treasure.
