Diaper bag pot discovered in church
Authorities in Tennessee said a man was arrested after what was believed to be an ounce of marijuana was found in his baby's diaper bag at a church.
Deputy Chief Donna Turner of the Tipton County Sheriff's Department said an off-duty officer worshiping at the Central Baptist Church in Brighton was consulted after nursery workers at the church found a suspicious-looking substance in the diaper bag, The Commercial Appeal newspaper in Memphis reported Tuesday.
Landrum was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell. The Department of Children's Services put the baby girl temporarily in the custody of her grandparents, The Commercial Appeal said.
