In all, investigators seized 65 marijuana plants, smoking devices, weighing scales and three pounds of marijuana in glass jars.

Authorities arrested 38-year-old Kerri Leigh Bishop and her husband, 36-year-old Joshua Michael Bishop on complaints of cultivation of a controlled substance and other charges.
