COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Two central Ohio parents are accused of selling marijuana to students from a nearby high school.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says Stacy and Patrick McGuire were arrested Thursday on charges of drug trafficking and possession. The office says the McGuires are parents of a middle and high school student in the same school district.

Authorities investigated a complaint about the couple selling marijuana to high school students. Sheriff Zach Scott says investigators found a pound of marijuana and drug paraphernalia during a search of the home.

The sheriff's office says the couple has admitted selling to high school students.

Messages seeking comment were left with their attorneys.

A woman who answered the phone at the McGuires' home and declined to identify herself says they shouldn't have been charged.
