Shelton Man Accused of Growing Marijuana in his Home

Shelton police have arrested a man accused of growing marijuana in his home.

Anthony Martino, 38, was charged with illegal cultivation of marijuana and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.

Police said back in March they were tipped off that there was a marijuana grow operating at the home, and they obtained a search warrant for the home.

Based on what they found they applied for an arrest warrant. Police said that when they arrived Monday to arrest Martino, he ran and tried to hide from officers in the backyard. Eventually he surrendered himself, police said.

Martino was released on a $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on May 22.
