A Wednesday morning visit from state parole agents resulted in two arrests and the confiscation of at least 2½ pounds of marijuana from a Trafford home, according to police.

Andrea Angela Capozzi, 47, and Flavio Joseph Linn, 31, are being held in the Westmoreland County Prison on $75,000 bond each on numerous drug-related offenses.

Trafford police said in court papers that state parole agents visited Linn at the Duquesne Avenue home where he and Capozzi live at 7 a.m. Investigators said Linn failed a drug test April 10 as part of his parole.

Police found a grow operation inside and seized numerous jars and sealed bags of suspected marijuana stashed around the home, as well as drug paraphernalia, cash, marijuana edibles and three guns, according to an affidavit.

Neither suspect had an attorney listed in online court records.

Preliminary hearings are set for April 24.Renatta Signorini is a Tribune-Review staff writer. Reach her at 724-837-5374, rsignorini@tribweb.com or via Twitter @byrenatta.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
