BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — You just can’t make this stuff up. Boca Raton Police responded to a domestic dispute back in December where a wife claimed her husband was threatening her with a machete. While investigating, officers noted a strong smell of marijuana emanating from the house.

No arrests were made. At the time. But fast forward to now. Boca Raton Police have charged Bonnie Long and David Long of the 400 block of NE 25th Terrace with sale/manufacture of marijuana and owning a structure or conveyance for the manufacture of a controlled substance.

A key line from the spectacularly written affidavit of probable cause:

“When i asked Bonnie if there were any drugs or anything illegal inside the home she hesitated then replied “no.” When I explained that officers located marijuana growing inside she said she was unaware of it. I asked how she could possibly be inside the home and not notice the overpowering smell of marijuana to which she shrugged her shoulders as if to imply she didn’t know.”
