Milford police this week arrested two local residents after discovering a marijuana growing operation inside their apartment on Claudette Drive.

Milford detectives responded to an apartment at 12 Claudette Dr., inside of which building management reported locating a marijuana growing operation, police said in a statement. After applying for a search warrant for the apartment, detectives found a large number of mature plants  stored inside two grow tents with a hydroponic control system setup that comprised lighting, ventilation and filtration systems.

The residents of the apartment -- Steven Johnson, 29, and Michaela Bohac, 27 -- weren't home at the time of the search, Milford police said, but returned shortly after the warrant was executed.

Police charged both with possession of a Class D substance with intent to distribute (cultivation), possession of a Class D substance with intent to distribute (buying/selling), possession of a Class D substance and conspiracy to violate drug laws.

I would comment on this article, but Patch has violated my First Amendment Right to Free Speech multiple times and does not allow my voice to be experienced by the rest of the population-- effectively silencing me and making me as good as dead.

Esoteric Knowledge, you might want to look for some actual knowledge. For example, when it comes to free speech, you might want to read the First Amendment and figure out what it actually means: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech. Congress has not made any law restricting your freedom of speech, have they? The Patch editors, on the other hand, might find your comments objectionable and they are well within their rights to remove said comments from their public forum. You are free to create your own public forum where you can allow your voice to be experienced by the rest of the population - for example, the domain name esotericknowledge.com is for sale - and the rest of the population will be equally free to ignore you over there.soteric Knowledge, you might want to look for some actual knowledge.
