WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - You say "tomato," I say ... well, a Wausau police officer said it was pot.

Officials said a 60-year-old man claimed he was growing tomatoes on his upper level patio, while an officer recognized the plants as being marijuana.

Police said they were tipped off about the marijuana patch last Saturday -- and a 53-year-old woman fessed up and said the drug was for her own use.

The couple faces possible charges of manufacturing marijuana, and possessing drug paraphernalia.
