East Texas police arrested a man and woman who they said dumped a gallon-sized bag of marijuana into a day care trash can.
Frederick Ruth, 50, and Youlanda Whitaker, 40, have been charged with possessing marijuana in a drug-free zone and possessing a dangerous drug.
Lufkin police said they received a report Monday of two people bagging marijuana in a car. Officers found it in the Noah's Ark Early Education Center Day Care and said Ruth and Whitaker were inside.
