ALPHARETTA, Ga. – An Alpharetta mother turned in her own son Jan. 5 when she suspected him and his friends of smoking marijuana in her house.

The mother told police she suspected her 18-year-old son of drinking and smoking in his room in the home’s basement. She said that if they knew police were coming, they would all flee. Police circled the home and entered to find the son in his room along with three other teens. Officers reported seeing two glass bongs as well as several cases of beer. A search of the room turned up a bag of marijuana along with a grinder, scales, box of sandwich bags and nearly $600 in cash.

All four teens were charged with underage drinking, with the homeowner’s son also charged with possession of marijuana.
