(CBS Connecticut) — Police found $300,000 worth of pot in Manchester.

Investigators found more than seventy pounds of marijuana in a unit at the Squire Village Apartment Complex.

Police also seized cash and other items they say were connected to the drug trade.

The East Central Narcotics Task Force says a man and woman had been flying to California and buying large amounts of pot, then sending it back to Connecticut via a private shipping carrier.

Twenty-four-year-old Kenneth Chaparro was arrested while he and 22-year-old Kiara Lopez were getting on a flight at Logan Airport in Boston last week.

Lopez was arrested when she attended Chaparro’s court appearance in Connecticut this week.

The pair face drug dealing charges.
