A Danville woman was arrested over the weekend for allegedly growing marijuana plants in her back yard.
Elise Rivera, 26, of 628 Highfield Road was charged Saturday with one count of cultivating more than five marijuana plants and one count of possession of marijuana.
Assistant Chief Tom Bustle spotted several plants growing in a garden behind the home. When he and Sgt. Todd Davis spoke to Rivera, she allegedly admitted that the plants belonged to her.
Rivera was taken to Boyle County Detention Center where she later was released on a $4,000 bond.
