A police dispatcher in Cincinnati was recently caught with "approximately a couple hundred pounds of marijuana" in her basement, police say. Teneal Poole, 36, faces two felony drug charges, but she told authorities the pot, which was found by the DEA per Fox 19, actually belonged to her live-in boyfriend. Per court records, she said she was aware the drugs were in the house. Damian Gray, 40, was also arrested and faces drug trafficking and possession charges, reports. The city manager, who says Poole has worked for the city since 2007, is reviewing her employment status. (More weird crimes stories.)
