WEST HAVEN, Conn. -- Connecticut police are investigating after about 600 marijuana plants were found at a daycare 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.
