A Jefferson City woman is busted for allegedly growing some illegal houseplants.

Police arrested 38-year-old Angela Parker yesterday at her home on Crestmere Court. Officers say they found a number of marijuana plants, an in-home greenhouse, and other evidence consistent with a grow operation. Social Services workers also went to the home because of a child there, along with the living conditions inside.

Parker was arrested for manufacturing a controlled substance, and intending to distribute drugs.
