Man Arrested After His 11 Month Old Leads Police To 500 Pot Plants

January 22, 2009

Canada (ChattahBox) – A Canadian man has been arrested for marijuana production and possession, after his 11 month old child accidentally dialed 911.

The call came in from B.C., and after the person on the line hung up without speaking, police were sent to investigate. Knocks on the door brought no response, and so the officers let themselves in, startling the man who had not known they were in his home.

β€œThe gentleman was quite surprised,” Constable Janelle Canning told reporters.

The man insisted he had not made the call, and that his son was too young to do it himself, so it must be a mistake. The boy was seen playing on the floor with the phone, pushing buttons, and it seemed obvious what had happened.

However, the police began investigating the area, suspicious of the man’s nervousness. It was then that they found over 500 marijuana plants, and exposed a large in-home growing operation.

The man was arrested, and the boy was taken from the home. He was later given over to his mother, who did not live at the residence, and was unaware of what the father had been doing.

He will face charges in April.

    Good! That father shouldn’t have been growing anything illegal with a child in the house. That’s dangerous and stupid of him to do. He deserved what he got. The child calling 911 accidentally, just fate and karma. The Dad deserved it totally.

    Michelle, I must completely disagree with your ignorance. There is nothing wrong with growing marijuana in your own home. He was not in any way putting his son in danger.

    Michelle, there is absolutely nothing wrong and dangerous with growing pot. Just another natural plant. However if he were to have a meth lab or some other dangerous drug lab in his house, then yes, one could say the father got what he deserved. Isn’t it illegal for the police to search even after the misunderstanding was cleared up? Or is it within the police officer’s right to search after the call has been made?

    That’s like saying if they received a 911 call where a kid sounds as if he’s being stabbed, and then they get there and there’s no kid. Or… if there’s more than one kid and one was infact in trouble but the one they’re seeing isn’t? Common sense would tell them to glance around on their way out to ensure honesty of the call.

    I thought weed was legal in Canada? And yeah…there is absolutely nothing wrong with growing marijuana in the house with a kid. There are normal household plants that, if a child were to eat, would kill them. Marijuana won’t do that. It can’t really harm anyone in any way.

    Really sucks ass for that guy, he could have had some dank bud as those plants look nice…..and now he’s going to jail for practically no reason, just wanted to smoke some herb. Sucks….

    The dude did have a little much for personal use. Bud should be sold legally to anyone who dam well wants it (18+ ofcourse). If we could buy it in the store nobody would do this…
