A Pennsylvania man is facing felony charges after police say he was growing marijuana in a home that three children also occupied.
According to WPXI 11, police said Jason Maier was growing the weed inside his home on Maple Street in Rochester Township, Beaver County.
Police first came to the home after being contacted by Children and Youth Services. Court documents say a worker at CYS was sent a video showing “two large black tents” with marijuana plants inside as well as growing equipment.
Documents also say the tents were shown next to children’s toys, the story said.
When police searched the home, they found the tents as well as two garbage bags of suspected marijuana in a detached garage. The criminal complaint states the marijuana had been moved there after Maier found out CYS would be visiting.
Police say three kids — ages 6, 4 and 1 — were inside the home with “easy access” to the tents.
Maier is facing multiple felony charges, one for the manufacture of drugs and the other for endangering the welfare of children.
