Teen Turns In Father On Marijuana Growing Operation
When you can even trust your own kids, who can you trust?
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – A Murfreesboro father is in trouble after his own son turned him in for growing marijuana.
Police went to the family home after the 15-year-old called to report allegations of physical abuse. When officers arrived the teen handed them a marijuana plant growing in a small flower pot. Inside the home, police found several plants in two illegal grow operations and arrested the father.
“The juvenile went inside and came out with a marijuana plant that was part of a grow operation inside the house,” said Kyle Evans with Murfreesboro Police.
In an exclusive interview the teen’s father told NewsChannel 5: “I could not believe my son would turn against his father like that.”
In addition to the marijuana plants and grow lights, Murfreesboro police also confiscated scales and supply of processed marijuana from the home. There’s no indication the suspect was growing the marijuana to sell.
