A southern Idaho woman growing a 4-foot tall pot plant in her front yard has been arrested and faces several felony drug charges.

A preliminary hearing in the case against 48-year-old Laurie M. Donald is scheduled next Thursday in Cassia County.

Police say an anonymous tip led them to the Donald's home on Oct. 21, when they found the marijuana plant growing in the corner of her front yard. Police obtained a warrant to search the home and found more than a pound of pot, some methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Donald has been charged with felony drug trafficking, manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
