DENVER, NC (WBTV) - Sheriff's deputies arrested two people who were allegedly growing marijuana plants inside a Denver home.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office received a tip that someone was growing marijuana inside at home at 870 Armstrong Lane.

When deputies entered the house, they discovered two marijuana plants inside two closets. 

The closets were being used as growing chambers for the plants.  One of the closets was inside an 18-month-old child's bedroom.

The child was taken from the home and placed in the custody of DSS.

Markie Ann Hawkins, 19 and David Lee McMurty, 23 were charged with manufacturing a controlled substance, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Both are being held in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $20,000 secured bond.
