ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) — Southern California police have seized 438 marijuana plants and arrested a 60-year-old man suspected of growing them in his home.

Arcadia police officers saw a suspicious vehicle parked on the street at about 10 p.m. Saturday and after speaking with a person in the area learned that marijuana was being grown in a house nearby.

The growing operation consisted of several rooms with lighting, ventilation and electrical wiring running through the house.
