A California mother has been detained after officers found an AK-47 and more than 80lbs of cannabis at her California home, where she allegedly encouraged her 15-year-old daughter to sell drugs.
Norma Angelica Alvarez and Jose Reyes Martinez, both 44, were arrested after Merced County Sheriff’s deputies served a marijuana cultivation search warrant at the Delhi home on Friday. Deputies found the loaded gun and weed in the master bedroom closet of the home.
It is unclear if Martinez lives in the home or what his relationship is to Alvarez but cops say Alvarez gave and encouraged her teenage daughter to sell the drugs.
A 15-year-old girl in the home was alleged to have been selling from her bedroom. This sign was among the evidence seized
‘During the investigation deputies learned the 15-year-old daughter was given marijuana from her mother to use and sell from her bedroom’, the Sheriff’s Office statement said.
Among the evidence was a poster which appears to have come from the teenager’s bedroom door which reads: ‘It’s the law. You must be 15 years of age or older to purchase weed. No coming in!! Knock!’.
While in her room, deputies say they found fixings of a full-scale weed retail operation including bagged weed, scales, lighters, grinders, edibles and wraps associated with the use of cannabis.
Also taken from the scene were 12 large marijuana plants, taken from the backyard in a makeshift green house.
The teen and another minor were placed in CPS custody.
Martinez was charged with marijuana crimes, possessing an assault weapon and assault on a child, the Merced Sun-Star reports. He was booked into the Merced County Jail on a $591,000 bond.
Alvarez was charged with suspicion of marijuana crimes and child endangerment. She was placed in the Merced County Jail and booked on a $151,000 bond.
