Two Jefferson City residents have been charged in connection with an alleged marijuana-growing operation that authorities said they found in their home last April.
John Goben, 60, is charged with manufacture of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Kelly Goben, 22, is charged with manufacture of a controlled substance and hindering prosecution.
Authorities were called to the Gobens' residence in the 1200 block of Westview Drive after gunshots were reportedly fired outside the residence, according to Cole County Sheriff's Department probable cause statements. It was later learned that Kelly's boyfriend had allegedly fired at a vehicle while standing in the driveway.
Kelly came out of the home when deputies arrived on the scene and told them no one else was in the home and refused to let authorities inside.
Deputies applied for and were granted a search warrant to go through the home. They reportedly found a marijuana-growing operation in the basement. Also found were a large amount of immature marijuana plants, ammunition, drug paraphernalia and a marijuana grinder.
