Fletcher police said they arrested two people and are looking for a third after 108 marijuana plants were found in a Fletcher business last month.

Investigators said the plants were found during a search of Oliver's Flooring and More at 107 E. Fanning Bridge Rd. on Aug. 27. They said they also found 35-year-old William Oliver and 37-year-old Donald Scanlan Jr. in a room, processing some of the plants.

Police said the building was being rented by Oliver and 45-year-old Leann Kelly.

Kelly and Oliver were each charged with trafficking in marijuana, manufacture of a controlled substance, maintaining a dwelling to keep controlled substances and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police said warrants have been issued for Scanlan's arrest.

The street value of the plants was $260,000, police said.
