Pot brownies baked in house under construction



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — An 18-year-old was apparently satisfying his munchies Feb. 20 after he was caught cooking marijuana brownies and cookies in a home under construction.

The employee of the homebuilder site went to lock one of the homes being built off Read Road when he noticed it smelled like marijuana and brownies. He searched the home and found the back door unlocked but no one inside the home.

He found brownies and muffins being cooked, cooking supplies, marijuana in a plastic container in the kitchen and a wallet on the counter. The wallet contained a driver’s license for an 18-year-old.

About 10 minutes later, the employee said a young man who had brownie mix on his shirt and was later identified from the license, came back to the home to retrieve the items he left behind.

The teen left when the employee would not give him his things. The employee threw the sweets into the vacant lot next door and gathered the rest of the items to keep the teen from taking them.

Deputies ran the teen’s tag number and it returned to his father who had the same address as the one on the license.

The teen told deputies he had been cooking earlier with a friend after he went into the subdivision to seek employment, but had a confrontation with an employee and left. He later changed his story saying he dropped off two people at the house to cook the brownies, and came back to retrieve the items for the friend.

The teen was arrested for possession of marijuana less than one ounce and criminal trespass.
