Three members of a Faribault family are facing felony drug charges after Cannon River Drug and Violent Offender Task Force agents reportedly found nearly 3½ pounds of marijuana in their home.

Agents conducted the search Jan. 10; charges were filed July 1.

Inside a bedroom belonging to Tami Jo Roloff, 37, and Peter Anthony Roloff, 39, agents reported finding more than 2½ pounds of marijuana valued at more than $6,000. They also found a jar with .51 grams of marijuana wax, a plastic bag with .31 grams of a white substance that tested positive for cocaine, a bottle of pills containing stimulants and digital scales, according to court reports.

In a locked safe in a bedroom belonging to 18-year-old Jordan Anthony Roloff, agents discovered more than a pound of marijuana, worth $3,000, and $4,155 in cash. Also located was a digital scale and small plastic bags, leading officers to believe that Jordan Anthony Roloff planned to sell or distribute the marijuana.

Tami Jo Roloff was charged with third-degree possession of amphetamine in a school zone, fifth-degree sale of marijuana, fifth-degree possession of marijuana wax and fifth-degree possession of marijuana. Peter Anthony Roloff and Jordan Anthony Roloff were each charged with fifth-degree sale of marijuana and fifth-degree possession of marijuana. All are felonies.

All are expected in court on July 31.
