A couple in Coloma, Michigan was arrested Wednesday and charged in connection to a marijuana growing operation authorities claim they found in the rear of their computer repair business, located directly across the street from the town's city hall.
In all, police said they pulled 206 marijuana plants out of the building. Area residents also told Michigan's ABC 57 News that they "smelled weed constantly" in the area around city hall for weeks leading up to the bust.
The couple, 66-year-old Dennis Dickson and 57-year-old Emily Jacobs, were arrested Wednesday afternoon following an investigation by the Berrien County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Authorities said the total value of the grow was roughly $206,000.
