A Grand Island couple was arrested Wednesday for allegedly possessing cocaine and growing marijuana in their Huth Road home, Erie County Sheriff’s Office officials said.

Christopher Weigand, 38, and Laurah Noland, 35, were charged following a raid at their home on Feb. 21 when sheriff’s deputies found a “felony amount of cocaine along with marijuana plants in an elaborate set up at the residence,” officials said.

They were charged with felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a narcotic drug and criminal possession of marijuana as well as other lesser charges.

Senior Det. Alan Rozansky said Weigand was a manager of a hydroponics store which gave him access to high-tech growing equipment.

They were scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon.
