Sometimes you can’t make this stuff up.
According to WGNS Radio, a child hit the panic alarm on a home alarm system and the end result was the child’s parents were arrested for Marijuana possession. When officers arrived at the home, they “smelled a strong marijuana order while talking with the mother of the child.
When the officers inquired about the smell, [the mother] retrieved a couple of marijuana buds. The patrolmen let [the mother] know they were not convinced the odor was coming from that small amount. [The mother] then retrieved a one-pound bag of marijuana and told them it was all she had. The officers still weren’t convinced and obtained a search warrant for the home.
During the search, an additional 27 one-pound bags of marijuana were found, some in a clothes dryer and some in a bedroom closet. A loaded nine-millimeter pistol was also found in the bedroom, along with a set of digital scales.
[The mother] is charged with felony marijuana possession in a drug free school zone (her home is within 1,000 feet of Dalewood Middle School), a crooks with guns law violation, and possession of drug paraphernalia. She is free on $33,500 bond.
One simple moral to the story: If you have 27 lbs of marijuana in your home, do whatever you have to in order to make sure that the panic button on your home alarm system cannot go off unexpectedly.
