A contracted employee of the Clark County Detention Center was arrested and booked into her workplace on Friday after Metro Police discovered a small marijuana grow house at her residence, officials said.

Candy Hibdon was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, possession with marijuana with intent to sell and conspiracy to violate the Uniform Controlled Substance Act, which regulates drugs.

Hibdon is an employee of NaphCare, a correctional health care provider that contracts with the detention center for medical services.

Officers discovered a grow house in the 1100 block of Little Sidnee Drive, near McCarran International Airport, police said.

Eric Rowsell — who also lives at the house — was arrested and charged similarly to Hibdon, with additional charges of child endangerment and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
