Of­fi­cers from the Union County Sher­iff’s Of­fice dis­cov­ered mar­i­juana, a grinder and a bong at the residence along with liquor and beer. One mi­nor said her mother owned the house and had given them per­mis­sion to be there. The mi­nors’ par­ents were called to pick them up and they were all sent home. The owner was con­tacted; she said she gave the chil­dren per­mis­sion to be at the house, but told them not to bring drugs or al­co­hol.

The par­ents also said there was pos­si­bly a pend­ing DHS case re­gard­ing the child’s stays at her fa­ther’s residence. The child said she wanted to stay at her mother’s house.
