(Jay-AP) -- The initial court appearance for two Oklahoma educators arrested on felony complaints of cultivation of marijuana is scheduled for Wednesday.

Forty-seven-year-old Joe Weaver is the principal of Watts High School and his school teacher wife were denied bail after being arrested Sunday.

Forty-nine-year-old Carolyn Weaver is a fifth-grade teacher in the Ottawa County town of Afton.

The couple was arrested after a helicopter sweep over the Grand Lake area.

An Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs investigator says the bureau flies over the county each year trying to spot illegal crops. Authorities also allegedly found a bag of marijuana in the couple's house.

The Weavers were released on bond today after being booked into the Delaware County Jail on complaints of cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.
