Mother Arrested for Growing Marijuana in Children’s Closet
When police showed up at the Tulsa home of Veronica Thompson, 21, they thought they were responding to a noise and weapons complaint. Neighbors at the apartment complex near East Pine Street and North Yale Avenue had complained about the loud music.
Reports say that Thompson’s boyfriend and two other men had kicked a door open and brandished a gun, threatening to shoot the residents.
Upon closer inspection of the home, police found a single marijuana plant in the children’s closet. A grow lamp was also in the closet along with the children’s toys and clothes.
Thompson was arrested and charged for cultivation of marijuana in the presence of a minor and two counts of child endangerment.
The children were taken into protective custody.
