WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The West Hartford Police Department has seized hundreds of pounds of marijuana after it was reportedly shipped to a home in town Wednesday afternoon.

According to police, 167 pounds of marijuana was delivered to a residence on Cambridge Street. 

Daniel Vidal, 20, of Cromwell, Andy Gajju, 23, of West Hartford, and Corey Brookshire, 39, of West Hartford were arrested when officers raided the home around 11 a.m., according to police.

All three men were charged with conspiracy to sell drug and sale/distribution of drugs along with other drug charges. Police added all of the men attempted to flee the home during the raid.

Gajju's wife Adriana Gajju told Eyewitness News that she doubts her husband was involved in the incident. She said Andy Gajju, who has been married for a year, has been looking for a job and trying to buy a home.

However, Andy Gajju has been in trouble with the law before for crimes such as car burglaries, third-degree assault and strangulation. 

Adriana Gajju admitted that a crate was delivered to their home and neither of them knew what was in it. She believes that the marijuana delivery is connected to two of Andy Gajju's friends.

The West Hartford Police Department is receiving assistance from Homeland Security, the Connecticut State Police and the Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration.

Sources told Eyewitness News that criminals are becoming more brazen when it comes to large marijuana deliveries. Wednesday's delivery was one of the largest in the town's history, but not the largest.
