A well-being call turned into a drug bust.
Sioux Falls police responded to an apartment complex Friday morning and when they went inside they discovered a marijuana growing operation with nine pot plants.
26-year-old Nicholas Mcilroy and 24-year-old Sarah Taylor were arrested after police found more than a pound and a half of marijuana in various stages of growth.
Police say they could smell the drug from outside the apartment complex on North Cleveland Avenue.
They were able to pinpoint the exact apartment based on the location of the exhaust vent where the smell was coming from.
Both Mcilroy and Taylor are expected in court on Friday.
