Here’s more from the Pocono Record:
When the vehicle she was in was stopped Feb. 6 in Coolbaugh Township, a woman gave marijuana to her 5-year-old son and told him to put it in his pockets and not to tell police, said Pocono Mountain Regional Police.
The mother, Mary Price, 43, of Tobyhanna, is charged with drug-and-paraphernalia possession, endangering a child’s welfare and tampering with evidence.
As part of an ongoing investigation targeting a Long Pine Drive residence in A Pocono Country Place, police stopped a vehicle leaving the residence. The vehicle was driven by Price . . . and Price’s son as a rear-seat passenger.
Police learned Price had given her son two packages of marijuana and told him to put it in his pockets and not tell officers, an affidavit states. Police found the marijuana on the boy, placed him in Monroe County Children And Youth Services’ custody and arrested Price.
