Candia couple charged with allowing minor to grow pot in their basement

Michael and Denise Smith of Candia are being charged with endangering a minor and criminal liability after 30 marijuana plants were found growing in their basement. 

CANDIA - A local couple and an unnamed juvenile have been have been arrested and charged with felonies after approximately 30 marijuana plants were found in the basement of their Raymond Road home.

Michael and Denise Smith, 42 and 34 respectively, have been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor and one count of criminal liability as accomplices to manufacturing a controlled substance.

The relationship of the Smiths to the minor has not been confirmed by Candia police, but it appears that they allowed the individual to cultivate the marijuana in the basement of their home, providing “shelter and electricity,” according to the official complaint.

The Smiths were released from Rockingham County jail on $5000 personal recognizance bond, and will appear before the 10th Circuit Court in Candia on November 7 at 9:15 am. The legal status of the minor is unclear at this time.
