Two former Utah residents who were living in a travel trailer in Durham, Maine, have been arrested and charged with aggravated forgery. Frank Terhaar and Michelle Hank, formerly of Salt Lake City, concocted a scheme in which they used the birth certificates of dead people and information from genealogical Web sites to obtain Maine identification credentials with the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
When police officials went to arrest the couple, they found marijuana plants growing on the couple's campsite. The operation included grow lights and a number of marijuana plants in different stages of maturity, officials say.
The grow operation and plants were seized and charges were brought against the couple in a Lewiston court.
Aggravated Forgery is a Class B felony carrying a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
Terhaar and Hank have been indicted on the charges and remain in custody.
