SUISUN CITY - A couple was arrested Tuesday after authorities investigating a domestic violence complaint found what they called a "sophisticated marijuana growing operation" in the home where they raise their toddler.
Carl West, 31, and Monica Roberts, 22, were booked into Solano County Jail on charges of growing marijuana, criminal conspiracy and child endangerment, sheriff's spokeswoman Officer Paula Toynbee said. They are scheduled to be arraigned today in Superior Court, Fairfield.
Detectives who searched the couple's home in the 200 block of Redstone Circle found three rooms that housed growing equipment and around 72 recently harvested plants, Toynbee said. Authorities also reported finding a loaded firearm. Toynbee said authorities charged the couple with child endangerment because glass tabletops in the residence had been broken, leaving glass strewn throughout the living room and garage area. There was also loose marijuana on the floor in nearly every room, she said.
