- Two couples who apparently exchanged indoor gardening tips were arrested in a pair of simultaneous drug raids on two east-end apartment buildings in Sherbrooke Wednesday morning.
The raids on apartments located at 232 and 229 7th Avenue netted about 250 pot plants ranging from seedlings to ones with stalks four- feet high.
At 232, police uncovered 150 marijuana plants and arrested a couple including a 45-year-old man and his 25-year-old spouse.
Meanwhile, across the street, another team of police uncovered 100 pot plants and arrested another pair. This time, it was a 35- year-old man and his 39-year-old spouse.
The two couples were expected to appear at the Sherbrooke courthouse on Wednesday afternoon.
