Sheriff Craig Webre said that deputies responding to a domestic disturbance call at a Highway 308 residence found a back door open with loud music coming from inside.

Webre says that officers detained a man in the home an interviewed a woman in the residence. She said that the two had gotten into a loud shouting match that led to the man striking her in the shoulder.

As Deputies were interviewing the woman, they also noticed 38 marijuana plants growing in the residence, according to the police report.

The couple was formerly married and divorced, but currently living together, according to Webre. Both claimed that the other was the owner of the 38 marijuana plants.

Police say they also found drug paraphernalia, along with marijuana packaged in large plastic bags.

According to Webre, the pot and paraphernalia had a street value of $57,000. The 38 plants were between 2 and 5 feet high, according to investigators.

The couple, Patricia Chauvin and Cornel Chauvin, has both been booked on charges of cultivation and possession with the intent to distribute marijuana.
