PROVO Police arrested a mother who they say had been smoking marijuana in front of her 3-year-old child.
Neighbors called Orem police on Sunday to ask that officers come check on a nearby home and the child living there, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed in 4th District Court.
The caller told police she frequently observed the child's parents smoking around the child and that the child's living conditions were terrible.
Orem police responded to the home and the child's mother let them inside. Officers said they observed poor living conditions and found the child lying on the couch next to a marijuana bong.
Further searching in the house revealed more drug paraphernalia and marijuana.
The child was left with the woman's brother and she was booked into the Utah County Jail for endangerment of a child, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
