Arenstein appears on pot charge
Veteran CBS Radio News correspondent Howard L. Arenstein, 60, and his wife, Israeli newspaper journalist Orly (Azoulay) Katz, 57, made a brief appearance in D.C. Superior Court Friday in connection with their Oct. 1 arrest for possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
The couple appeared before D.C. Magistrate Judge Karen Howze with their attorney Jonathan Zucker. Howze scheduled the couple's preliminary hearing for Nov. 16 before Magistrate Judge Kimberley S, Knowles.
According to court charging documents, police received an anonymous tip that the couple, who reside in Georgetown in the 3500 block of T St. NW, were growing marijuana plants in their backyard.
Police discovered 11 eight-feet tall plants in the couple's yard and six, 2-ounce bags of marijuana were found inside the house.
