According to KTLA — $1 million worth of a marijuana plants at a licensed day care facility in West Haven, Connecticut was found.
West Haven Police Department officers were called to a home on Norfolk Street on Friday and allegedly found 600 marijuana plants in the backyard, according to WTIC.
The street value of the plants after processing was estimated to be over $1 million.
State inspectors discovered the marijuana plants growing in the backyard of the home day care and called local police.
The day care facility was shut down by city housing inspectors, and the day care license was immediately revoked.
Next door neighbors Ivette Quiles and Frankie Torres said the couple who lived in the home kept to themselves. When they saw all the police activity, they knew something was up, but didn’t expect this.
“I saw him building something in the backyard and kind of thought it was just a regular fence,” Torres said.
The discovery had neighbors talking about what was behind that fence.
“I should have smelled that. That’s crazy. I didn’t expect that,” said another neighbor Robson Antoine. “And they have a daycare? Not good.“
