Staten Island, N.Y.-- Federal investigators have smashed a $10-million-a-year pot operation being run out of a Staten Island, N.Y. garage, authorities said yesterday.

Drug Enforcement Administration agents raided the building Monday and discovered more than 100 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $2.5 million, according to law-enforcement sources, The New York Post reports.

Agents seized 450 mature plants and arrested suspected growers Keith Levine, 33, of Brooklyn, and Michael Arroyo, 37, of Sunnyside in Staten Island.

The indoor farm had apparently been running for at least three years and used a sophisticated ventilation and fertilization system, sources added.
