Scott Thomas Fisher, 29 (L), Lori Ann Fisher, 31 (R)
ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- A couple accused of growing marijuana in their bedroom closet were arrested and charged in Clay County.
Scott Thomas Ryland Fisher, 29 and his wife, 31-year-old Lori Ann Fisher were busted when detectives with the Clay County Sheriff's Office responded to their home in the 400 block of Charles Pickney Street following a narcotics complaint, according to police reports from the Clay County Sheriff's Office.
Detectives were watching as Scott allegedly backed his pick-up truck into his garage and loaded it up with a white plastic bag and a large white cardboard box, the reports detailed.
Scott was later seen running a stop sign and pulled over by CCSO deputies. After smelling a strong marijuana odor, deputies searched Scott's pick-up to find multiple marijuana plants, nearly two pounds of marijuana, glass pipes, scales and small plastic bags.
Detectives obtained a warrant to search the Fisher's home and allegedly found a collapsible marijuana grow tent in the couples bedroom closet. The tent featured a fan, ventilation pipe and reflective walls, according to the reports. Detectives also allegedly found "fresh" marijuana leaves inside the tent.
Additionally a black floor safe was found in the home containing $1,700, five pistols and three silver bullion.
The couple's two children were home at the time of the search and were released to their grandparents, but the Florida Department of Children and Families was notified for a follow up investigation.
Scott Fisher was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and Lori Ann Fisher was charged with cultivation of marijuana. Both Fisher's are facing felony charges.
