— BOSWELL, Pa. — Pennsylvania State Police will be charging two Somerset residents who authorities say were growing marijuana in the woods.

Mary Elizabeth Beeman, 23, and Jonathan Richard Barr, 21, were arrested Tuesday.

Police allege that the pair planted 28 marijuana plants in a wooded area north of Boswell. The suspects, police said, hauled potting soil and cut down several trees so that sunlight could reach the plants.
