HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old boy who said he was fed up with marijuana smoke in his house took pictures of the drug which led to a raid by authorities and sent his mother and stepfather to jail in Dakota County.
Drug agents served a search warrant on the house in Ravenna Township near Hastings last month and arrested Heidi Siebenaler, a Dakota County probation supervisor, and her husband, Mark Siebenaler. Both face charges in the case.
A criminal complaint says the boy told investigators he had complained numerous times to his mother about the smell of the marijuana. He finally took the matter to his biological father who told his son to take pictures of the marijuana. The father then forwarded the photos to authorities.
Heidi Siebenaler tells KMSP-TV (http://bit.ly/u81Buf ) that her husband smokes marijuana for medicinal purposes.
