Paging Geraldo!

I don't know if this is real or fake ... but for your amusement on a Saturday night ... a secret basement below an REO in Las Vegas.

In a nondescript Las Vegas house, which was foreclosed/sold at auction, behind a secret panel wall in the kitchen, a stairway leads down 1 1/2 stories to a full-size bank vault door. Behind the door is a whole secret suite of rooms ... A main room with about 1200 sq ft., a toilet, a passage tunnel to a place outside of the property (which was drywalled off), and the kicker, is two concrete and steel tiny rooms with sound-proofed interiors, and no inside doorknob.
Someone alert Geraldo.
