WOONSOCKET â€” A local couple is facing felony drug charges after police found them in possession of a greater number of marijuana plants than allowed under their state Department of Health medical marijuana permits.
Police arrested John Soares, 46, and Patricia Molyneaux, 38, on charges of cultivating marijuana and manufacturing and possessing marijuana with intent to deliver, after finding a marijuana growing room in their Front Street apartment Wednesday.
WOONSOCKET â€” Shop local, buy local, and save gas while supporting the areaâ€™s small businesses tomorrow â€” National Shop Small Saturday.

Among these Mendon Road small businesses is Caribbean Tan, which is now offering gift certificates.
FOSTER -- Hereâ€™s a strange, but true fact: heading into its Thanksgiving Day duel with Burrillville, Ponaganset had lost its last four games, and seven of its last eight, at home on The Reservation.
But the Chieftains silenced their home woes and a four-game losing streak on Thursday by riding a solid effort from their senior class to a 27-0 victory over the Broncos before a large gathering.
WOONOCKET â€“ Chris Skurka had no intention on letting up.
Despite a more important playoff game early next week, the Cumberland High coach planned to have his red-hot squad go full throttle against Woonsocket in their annual Thanksgiving Day contest.
He lied. Well, sort of.
The Clippers scored four times in the first quarter, found the end zone again in the second quarter and gave the reserves some ample playing time after halftime in cruising to a 35-6 rout of the Villa Novans on Thursday morning.
CENTRAL FALLS â€“ There was no slippage or signs of letup. For playoff-bound Central Falls, it was simply full speed ahead.
Thursdayâ€™s 34-0 holiday win against Lincoln High was just what C.F. head coach Mo Jackson was looking for. His Warriors raced to a commanding 27-0 halftime lead behind three touchdown passes from quarterback Brandon Canuto, who completed 9-of-11 passes for 247 yards.
SCITUATE --- Scituate made it interesting and competitive for a full quarter, but the winless Spartans ended up becoming nothing more than a minor speed bump in North Smithfieldâ€™s drive to the Division IV regular-season title.
The visiting Northmen erased a first-quarter deficit by erupting for 28 second-quarter points and cruising to a 60-13 rout at Caito Field that iced the squadâ€™s first regular-season championship in its 44-year existence.
LINCOLN â€” Thanks to beefed-up security measures, the Mixed Martial Arts fights held at the Twin River Event Center on Friday night remained in the ring, and the audience that watched did only that.
That's just one reason why the Town Council, which also acts as the Board of License Commissioners, voted unanimously (5-0) to accept a report regarding increased security during such events on Tuesday night. Those new standards were provided by Twin River representatives and Police Chief Brian Sullivan during a public hearing held at Council Chambers.
