Marchman Act Blog: CBS radio reporter, wife arrested on suspicion of growing marijuana

(Tribune Newspapers) -- The Washington Post reports that CBS Radio News correspondent Howard Arenstein and his wife were arrested Saturday on drug charges after police said they searched their Washington home and found marijuana plants growing in the yard.

The Post says that police arrested Arenstein and his wife, Orly Azoulay, and charged them with possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Azoulay is the Washington correspondent for Yedioth Ahronoth, the largest and most widely read newspaper in Israel.

Police executed a search warrant at the home Saturday, according to the Post, after a tip, and found 11 fully mature marijuana plants and six two-ounce bags of marijuana inside the home. Each plant is considered by authorities to equal one pound of marijuana.
