Police: Pennsylvania cop, 911 dispatcher grew pot at home

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania police officer and the 911 dispatcher he lives with have been charged with felonies for allegedly growing four marijuana plants in their home.

The charges against 43-year-old Christopher Thomas and 33-year-old Emily Fagan were filed after the state police and Dauphin County Drug Task Force - which is led by the district attorney's office - raided their home near Harrisburg on Monday.

Online court records don't list attorneys for the couple who are due in court Aug. 7 on charges of manufacturing marijuana and conspiracy.

Assistant District Attorney Fran Chardo says Thomas has been suspended from his job with the Harrisburg police, which he joined in 2009. Fagan's employment status wasn't immediately clear.

Authorities say Harrisburg police contacted the drug task force when they learned of the plants.
