Donna Olster (Photo: Fairfield Police Department)  FAIRFIELD — Police on Friday said they made a third arrest on charges stemming from a marijuana growing operation at a Nell Court home in the township.

Donna Olster, 68, of Fairfield, was arrested Wednesday on a range of drug offenses, including possession of 10 to 49 marijuana plants, maintaining or operating a drug facility and conspiracy to distribute marijuana, according to township police Chief Anthony Manna. She was ordered held at the Essex County Correctional Facility in lieu of $250,000 bail.

The arrest came after officers responded to a dispute at the home and discovered the elaborate marijuana farm last Saturday, police said in a statement. Timothy Olster, 40, and Jose Sanchez, 30, were allegedly fighting there and both face charges. It was unclear if Timothy and Donna were relatives.
