Forty-one year-old Elizabeth Marquez of Califon faces a range of charges related to allegedly maintaining an indoor marijuana cultivation operation.

The Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office says Marquez was arrested May 1 after workers from the Division of Youth and Family Services responded to the home following an anonymous tip of possible child abuse.

The prosecutor’s office says its detectives and police from Tewksbury Township, who accompanied the child welfare workers, found marijuana plants, grow lights, fans and other drug-related materials.

A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office says they’re not sure if Marquez has retained a lawyer. She’s being held on $100,000 bail.

The investigation is continuing and additional arrests are possible.
