Police find 600 marijuana plants at a New England day care
WEST HAVEN, Conn. — Police found hundreds of marijuana plants after being called to a day care because state child care inspectors were denied access to a fenced-in area.
A tall wooden fence in the backyard concealed about 600 marijuana plants - worth over $1 million, according to WTIC.
The day care was immediately shut down and its license was revoked by city housing inspectors.
The building's poor conditions were the original reason for the inspectors visit. The building has been condemned.
The day care, which has been in operation since 1995, was run my Rosalee Miller.
Police say the investigation is ongoing but no arrest have been made. The person responsible may be charged with risk of injury to a minor and operating a drug factory.
