A Bridgeport man is accused of growing marijuana in his attic. 24-year-old Justin Wood is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. Police searched his Second Street home and arrested him on Friday, May 18, after informants made undercover buys.
They found grow lights, fertilizer and other gardening products along with several potted plants inside a tent. In all they found about 1 1/2 pounds of the drug and called the local code enforcement officer, who condemned the house because of concerns about the electrical setups powering the attic operation.
