CHOCTAW — Authorities knocked on a Choctaw couple's door to inquire about missing Texas children, but found 16 marijuana plants instead.
Oklahoma County sheriff's deputies seized plants from the hydroponic marijuana growing operation, along with processed marijuana, marijuana seeds and weapons.
The deputies were assisting the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation in the missing children case Wednesday when they went to 6300 S Indian Meridian to interview the residents. The deputies received permission to search the home and found the marijuana, according to a sheriff's office statement.
Deputies arrested Dayna Michelle Lake, 48, on warrants including possession of a controlled dangerous substance, driving under the influence and other vehicle offenses.
Ronald James Rogers, 42, was taken into custody on complaints of possession of a firearm after a former conviction for a felony, unlawfully cultivating a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of a weapon while committing a felony.
Lake and Rogers were taken to Oklahoma County jail. Bail was set at $4,000 for Lake and $30,000 for Rogers, a jail official said.
