Photos give glimpse inside alleged 'pot houses'

Police have released photographs from inside two Nassau homes they say served as grow houses for nearly 400 marijuana plants.

Authorities say 49-year-old James Blatchly harvested hundreds of pot plants at a home in Flower Hill and in his own home in Locust Valley.

"Marijuana can go for as much as $4,500 a pound,? Nassau County Street Narcotics Bureau Chief Teresa Corrigan says. ?We found well over ten pounds, so we're talking an awful lot of marijuana, and an awful lot of street value.?

Five people were arrested along with Blatchly.
