Elma couple accused of growing marijuana in their apartment

Two people face felony charges connected to a marijuana growing operation found in their Elma apartment, according to State Police.

Andrew Dorman, 25, and Erika Heltz, 22, surrendered with their attorney, troopers said. Each was charged with a felony count of possession of marijuana.

During a search of the couple’s Clinton Street apartment last fall, marijuana was found throughout the dwelling, police said. After it was allowed to dry, it weighed in at more than a pound, police said.

Also seized were items used in the growing operation, police reported.

Following arraignment in Elma Town Court, the couple is scheduled for another court appearance April 27.
