Wake woman charged with growing six marijuana plants in plastic pot

From staff reportsJanuary 3, 2014 

— Police have charged a 20-year-old Zebulon woman with growing marijuana and several other drug-related offenses.

Marla Maria Tobias, of 9737 Cypress Farm Drive, was cited for growing six plants in a single pot, though the arrest warrant is unclear as to how much marijuana police seized.

She is accused of “planting 6 marijuana seeds in a blue plastic pot with dirt and watering them to make them grow,” an arrest warrant states. The six plants were located in a “bonus room area” of the defendant’s home.

Tobias is charged with felony marijuana manufacturing and felony keeping and maintaining the house on Cypress Farm Drive for the keeping and selling of marijuana. She also is accused of having several smoking apparatuses and misdemeanor possession of a hydrocodone tablet.

Tobias, listed as an employee of a local Target store, was arrested just before 3 p.m. Friday. She posted a $1,500 bond and left the Wake County Detention Center at about 5 p.m.
