Parents Arrested for Growing Marijuana in 2-Year Old's Bedroom

(Greenup Co.) - Deputies in one eastern Kentucky county arrested two people after finding a marijuana growing operation in a 2-year old child's bedroom. Earlier this week sheriff's deputies in Greenup County arrested 23 year old Ashley Walters and 32 year old Harold Forrest after they responded to a "child welfare" call at the couple's residence. Inside the home, deputies found a 2-year old and a 4-year old child. Inside the 2-year old's bedroom, they found a medium-size growing operation and large amounts of drug paraphernalia. Several marijuana plants were found growing near the children. Forrest and Walters were both charged with two counts of felony wanton endangerment along with several drug charges. Both children were removed from the home by social services.
