A Tredyffrin Township man and another man from Philadelphia are now in prison, after police confiscated $135,000 in cash and more than $2.5 million worth of marijuana in simultaneous raids in Tredyffrin Township and Philadelphia.

According to Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan, a neighbor's report of an overwhelming smell of marijuana from the Philadelphia home of David Eisenstadt, 50. The complaint led to an investigation of Eisenstadt and his alleged accomplice, Devon resident James Lippert, 49, by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Chester County DA's drug unit, and the Philadelphia nad Tredyffrin Police Departments.

When police raided Lippert's home in June, they found $135,000 in cash and marijuana packaged for sale. "In Philadelphia, police found a grow operation for high quality 'hydro' marijuana, including 30 pounds of bulk marijuana and 530 live marijuana plants. The street value of the seized marijuana is over $2.5 million," according to Hogan.
