MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Police in Minnesota say an 11-year-old boy turned in his mother and stepfather over marijuana kept in the family home.

Police in Dakota County say the boy, tired of marijuana smoke in the home, snapped cellphone pictures of a couple of pounds of marijuana on a dresser in the bedroom of his mother and stepfather and had the images forwarded to the Dakota County Drug Task Force.


The marijuana was found in the couple's home near Hastings during a raid by the drug task force on Oct. 25, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

As a result, Heidi Christine Siebenaler, 40, a Dakota County probation supervisor, is on paid administrative leave and charged with fifth-degree possession of marijuana.

Her husband, Mark Siebenaler, 40, is being charged with possession and intent to distribute. He told police the pot is for medicinal purposes although marijuana has not been legalized for medical use in Minnesota.

"These allegations raise moral concerns and legal concerns," Washington County Attorney Pete Orput said. "It's disappointing when someone in law enforcement gets caught breaking the law. In this case it is particularly disappointing."
