BOISE -- Two residents of a Boise home are in jail accused of growing and trafficking marijuana after officers reported finding more than nine pounds of pot, live pot plants, and five guns in their Boise home just after midnight Thursday.

Police say 32-year-old Christopher D. Redd and 23-year-old Elaynea N. Robinson -- both of Boise -- are charged with felony manufacturing marijuana and felony trafficking marijuana related to the incident.
