Milpitas Police seized marijuana worth $1.1 million at a residence on Stemel Way near Evans Road. Over 249 marijuana plants were confiscated from the house. On Friday evening, April 22 at about 7 p.m., during a search, detectives arrested 30 year-old Vu Thanh Tran and 40 year-old Hung Thanh Tran. Hung and his nephew Vu had converted the house into an illegal indoor marijuana growing operation. The interior of the residence had been modified, with exhaust systems, air filtration systems, growing lights and timers. Both Milpitas residents were booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for illegal marijuana cultivation.
