Annette Heath and Wilton Heath were arrested Tuesday and charged with manufacturing marijuana, according to a news release from Aiken County sheriffs Capt. Troy Elwell.
Police say narcotics investigators received an anonymous tip that the two were growing marijuana at a home at 118 Sharon Lane. Authorities say they were able to see marijuana plants in the backyard and found two closets being used as marijuana-growing rooms, fully equipped with aluminum foil-lined walls and grow lamps, the release says.
In a search of the home, police said they found 19 plants ranging in size from 4 inches to 6 feet tall and worth an estimated $1,000.
