Barnesville girl leads police to parents' marijuana plants

by

BARNESVILLE, Minn. (KFGO-AM) - A nine-year-old girl is being credited with leading Barnesville, Minn. police to a marijuana grow operation.

Police chief Dean Ernst tells KFGO News the girl walked inside the police department and told an officer that her mom and dad smoke pot.

“The girl’s concern was about her parents smoking marijuana and actually growing marijuana in the house” according to Ernst. “They had a little grow room set up in a cellar under the house.”

Police got a search warrant for the home and seized marijuana plants, drug paraphernalia and grow equipment.

The girl said her parents even gave the plants names such as "Justice" and "Lily."

Charges have not been filed. The girl is staying with relatives.
