Texas Tot Tries to Sell Pot: Police
San Juan police arrested a 22-year-old South Texas woman after her neighbors reported that her 4-year-old daughter was trying to sell a brick of marijuana.
Maria Ipina has been charged with possession of a controlled substance after her Monday arrest. A San Juan police dispatcher declined to release any information Tuesday night on Ipina.
However, Police Chief Juan Gonzalez told The Monitor of McAllen that neighbors reported her daughter was going door-to-door on Saturday, trying to sell marijuana.
Gonzalez said police found more than 200 grams of cocaine packaged for sale, but no marijuana in Ipina's apartment.
Gonzalez said the girl and her 6-month-old sibling have been turned over to Ipina's mother. No attorney has been listed for her.
