A husband and wife are arrested in Jackson County after what deputies call a major marijuana bust.

Deputies say in a Winters Road Home in Ripley they found two hidden grow rooms in the basement, including over 100 plants and growing equipment.

James and Terri Merical are arrested, charged with manufacturing marijuana.

Officials say Terri told them she knew marijuana was being grown in the home but denies any other part in the crime.
