SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say police seized nearly 1,900 marijuana plants valued at up to $5 million on the street in a major sweep in San Jose.

KNTV reports (https://bit.ly/29klroq ) Thursday that police on Wednesday arrested a couple who investigators claim ran the operation. Four others were also arrested. The couple arrested has been identified by police as Dean Trinh and Kim Le. It was not immediately known if they have attorneys. The names of the others were not released.

Police say the pot-growing operation was spread across seven homes turned into greenhouses, powered by stolen electricity, throughout the city. Police say the landlord for one of the properties reported suspicious activity, which led to the police sweep. The case remains under investigation.
