Police Chief Terry Franklin said Mark Rodgers, 43, and Alicia Tyler, 29, were booked on charges of cultivation of marijuana, possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. They are being held without bond.
Franklin said when officers served a search warrant at the Lakeview Lane home Monday they uncovered a large-scale marijuana growing operation along with grow lights, fertilizer and potting soil.
