Drug raid nets official's son

        LEBANON — The adult son and daughter-in-law of a Warren County commissioner are due in municipal court Monday after drug task force officers raided their East Warren Street home and accused them of growing marijuana.

        John Burke, head of the Warren County Drug Task Force, said police confiscated several plants, grow lights, a plant incubator and processed marijuana when they searched the home Thursday of Steven and Tommie “Lynn” Crisenbery.

        More than 37 pounds of marijuana were seized, police said. The raid came after a 10-week investigation.

        Commissioner Larry Crisenbery said Friday he was surprised by the arrests.

        “When you raise children, you never know,” he said. “I haven't spoken to Steve or Lynn. But I believe very strongly in the judicial system, in the courts, and the chips are just going to fall where they fall. This is a terrible shock to me.”

        Steve Crisenbery, a 40-year-old roofer, is to be arraigned on charges of cultivation of marijuana and preparation of drugs for sale.

        His wife, also 40, faces a charge of complicity to cultivation of marijuana. The charges, all felonies, each carry a prison term of one to five years.
