Two face arraignment after police find pot growing inside Elmwood Place residence

CINCINNATI -- Police arrested two people Monday evening after they discovered marijuana growing inside a home and the pair are scheduled for arraignment Wednesday in a Hamilton County courtroom.

Stacie Curtis, 28, and Joseph Wallace, 30, were taken into custody after investigators found a large hydro-marijuana operation growing in the basement of the home. Hydro-marijuana is a process of growing pot strictly in water.

Five young children, ages 13 to 2, were also found inside the home at the time of the arrests. Arrangements have been made for the children.

Sgt. Kevin Vanover of the Elmwood Place Police Department says that all manufacturing items were removed from the home and the investigation of the operation is ongoing.

Curtis and Wallace are scheduled to appear in court at 9 a.m. to face drug charges and five counts of child endangering.
