PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) -- Three Camp Verde residents were arrested after Yavapai County deputies raided a home and found more than 100 marijuana plants being grown inside.

Sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said Monday that David Wagoner, 23, Howard Collins, 51, and Cheri Spencer, 42, are in custody pending a Thursday court hearing.

The trio were arrested after deputies served a search warrant last Thursday on a Camp Verde home.

Besides marijuana plants, D'Evelyn says deputies seized equipment used in the production of marijuana, including special grow lights.

Wagoner, Collins and Spencer were booked for investigation of production of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
