[23:39] my friend that's a miner got raided by the police
[23:39] yeah they thought he was growing weed
[23:39] problem the massive heat/energy bill
[23:39] probably**
[23:39] they can legally do that just by massive power
consumption?
[23:40] apparently
[23:42] they didnt know what to think they searched the
house and left
[23:43] his power company reported him or something like
that

I can't verify the authenticity of this conversation but I imagine it's possible, especially if the targeted "miner" had a setup like this. Now imagine they start making wasteful raids like this all over the country, how much money that's going to cost. Could it cost more than what they can afford?
