Police: North York Stoner smoked pot in front of grandkids
Police on Monday arrested a Stoner for allegedly smoking weed with her underage daughter — and in front of her two young grandchildren.
Northern York County Regional Police say Rebecca Suzanne Stoner initially denied using marijuana when Officer Andrew Miller went to her 19 Sigsbee Ave. home shortly before 5 p.m.
Miller went there after receiving an anonymous tip, according to charging documents.
Stoner, 44, was outside when Miller arrived, and he was blunt with her about his purpose.
Miller told her he was there to investigate suspected drug activity at her home, police said. She denied the allegations, charging documents state.
What the cop spied: That's when the officer happened to spot Stoner's blue glass bong, documents allege.
"Looking through the front window of the home, in plain view on a table, I viewed an item that I immediately recognized as a bong, based on my police training and experience," Miller wrote in charging documents.
At that point Stoner admitted to smoking pot, charging documents allege.
And when Miller asked to see the bong, also called a water pipe, Stoner invited the officer inside, police said.
Miller said the home smelled strongly of marijuana that had been smoked.
Kids present: Also in the room were Stoner's 4-year-old and 8-month-old grandchildren, and Stoner's 17-year-old daughter, documents state.
Stoner and her daughter turned over a partially smoked marijuana blunt and some drug paraphernalia, and Stoner admitted she'd smoked pot with her teenage daughter, police allege.
"All illegal items were located within arm's reach of all juveniles," Miller wrote in charging documents.
He arrested Stoner, who was arraigned on three counts each of endangering the welfare of children and corruption of minors and one count of possessing drug paraphernalia.
She remains free on her own recognizance, according to court records.
A phone number for Stoner could not be found, and it's unclear if she's retained an attorney.
