Family-Run Pot-Growing Operation Raided

Marijuana-growing was a family affair in an Orleans County town.

State police say a father, mother and their son had a sophisticated growing operation in their Clarendon, New York, home, where they executed a search warrant on Friday.

Troopers say the marijuana was growing in the basement, while the plants were being dried and packaged for sale on the second floor of the home. Besides the plants, police seized a large quantity of harvested marijuana, two long guns and a .380-caliber handgun.

51-year-old David Costrino, 64-year-old Marcia Costrino and 27-year-old Austin Costrino were each charged with one count of criminal possession of marijuana, a second-degree felony.
