LOS ALAMOS, N.M. - Authorities have evicted a man from a cave on Los Alamos National Laboratory land where they say he apparently lived for years
with the comforts of home — a wood-burning stove, solar panels connected to car batteries for electricity and a satellite radio
Los Alamos Deputy Fire Chief Doug Tucker said Roy Michael Moore's hideaway, which also was equipped with a bed and a glass front door, was discovered

Firemen responding to the site discovered that Moore also was growing ten marijuana plants. Deputies were called to the scene and he was charged with
possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Staff at Los Alamos indicated that the area had not been used in years
despite its close proximity to offices located there and further note that the location is not near any sensitive areas on the lab.
Haha, living off the grid right in The Man's most prized backyard. Shame they couldnt have just relocated him to some other land instead of seizing
