MILFORD - Milford police say a couple with two young children has been arrested for growing massive amounts of marijuana in their home.

Authorities say Devin Batista, 28, and Arlin Cacedes, 26, were arrested after 103 marijuana plants were found in their home on Andover Drive.

Officials say yesterday's bust coincided with the arrest by federal agents of a pot grower in Ansonia, which they say was a related drug-growing operation.

Police say Batista is behind bars on $250,000 bond and Cacedes was released on a promise to appear in court.
