When four juveniles who skipped school on Sept. 13 were caught by Milton police, one of the youth's mothers used the opportunity to get help searching her daughter's room for drugs.
Police received a call about a suspicious vehicle in Wyndham subdivision. The responding officer found the car unattended with its windows open. He had to leave for another call, but when he returned he spotted the car on Sunfish Bend with four occupants.
One of the four teens admitted that a bottle of wine was his, and he was issued a citation for minor in possession of alcohol. Family members arrived to take the juveniles home.
However, the mother of the female juvenile asked the Milton officer to search her daughter's room with his police service dog. The officer agreed, and the K9 alerted to several locations in the room. According to the police report, the daughter retrieved pipes, empty containers and empty bags that she said once contained illegal drugs. Those items were taken and destroyed.
Juvenile Caught in Lie About Age Taken to Grandmother's House
A juvenile Milton police say was found with several burnt ends of marijuana cigarettes lied about his age, and it got him a trip to jail. But since he claimed to be older, his trip to jail ended with a trip instead to his grandmother's house.
A Milton police officer was dispatched to a Marrywood Court cul de sac on Sept. 16 at 5:29 p.m. with a complaint that juveniles were smoking pot. The officer sent to the scene saw four males sitting on a power junction box, but none of them were seen smoking.
When a juvenile who confirmed a backpack was his consented to a search of it, the officer found the suspected burnt marijuana cigarettes. He was taken to the Alpharetta Jail, but was soon on his way to grandmother's house once the officer discovered he was 16 years old. The other three males had been released from the scene.
