A 1-year-old girl is in protective custody after police found marijuana and several syringes in her home in the 4200 block of South Hydraulic.
The child's parents, a 21-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman, were taken into custody, police said. Police went to the home at about 4:20 p.m. Wednesday after a caller asked them to check on the child's welfare.
We also had syringes in our home when the law dogs raided. The needles were right there on the windowsill of the kitchen window above the sink. You couldn't miss them.
But the raiders were not interested in these as they were mostly concerned with going through our personal paperwork. It was kind of a mini-data-mining operation.
Of course the needles we had were the ones that we had accquired for the purpose of administering antibiotics to our Nanny Goat who had recently suffered a dog attack. But the Task force didn't know that.
Nanny's rump was messed up pretty bad and the vet said she would probably not be able to reproduce. But no one told Her and Billy that and so they surprised us with a handsome son.
