        UNION TOWNSHIP — Nearly 200 marijuana plants were seized from a suburban home that had been turned into an indoor drug farm, police officials said Tuesday.

        Union Township Police Capt.John Bruce said the raid of a home at 8000 LeSourdsville-West Chester Road late Monday was the largest capture of indoor marijuana plants in the township's history.

        The suspects had a sophisticated lighting system and were producing high quality, well-cared-for plants,” Capt. Bruce said.

        He estimated the street value of the marijuana at about $10,000.

        Police said Richard Volz, 55, and his wife, Pamela, 54, were arrested and charged with cultivation of marijuana, and Mr. Volz was also charged in connection with his possession of four handguns and approximately 600-700 rounds of ammunition.

        The couple, who did not resist arrest, are both freed on bond and are scheduled to be arraigned in Union Township Court on May 30.
