A couple was arrested on charges of drug possession after their young daughter called police, police in Minnesota said.
The Barnesville Police Department said that the 9-year-old girl walked into the police station and calmly reported that her parents were growing marijuana in the house and selling it to others.
She hoped the police would take care of the problem because the smell of all that smoke made her feel sick. She was also worried that all the smoke would make her dog sick.
Officers at the scene said that the experience of questioning the girl was adult like. She seemed to have intelligence far above some normal girl.
She gave some very specific information about things like the types of drug paraphernalia, which no young person should have knowledge about.
When police searched the home of the girl last week, they found seven marijuana plants, a lot of drug paraphernalia and a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.
The girl told police that her parents were selling and smoking drugs. She was removed from the house and is staying with her grandparents.
