WEST HAVEN, Conn. — Police are investigating after about 600 marijuana plants were located in a day care in West Haven on Friday.

The plants, which were 6 to 10 feet tall, were located in the backyard of 159 Norfolk St. Police said state inspectors discovered the marijuana plants growing while conducting a compliance inspection.

Officers noticed the “newly erected wooden fence that housed the plants” and then conducted a search of the property.

The day care facility has been shut down by the West Haven City Housing inspectors and their license has been revoked.

Police said their “arrests are forthcoming” in this incident.
