A Perris couple face crime for allegedly storing processed cannabis near children – Press Enterprise
PERRIS – A Perris couple are charged with growing marijuana at their home and child endangerment charges for bringing processed cannabis near three young children, authorities said on Saturday, July 24.
The sheriff’s deputies issued a search warrant Friday on a residence on the 500 block on Shawnee Road and two nearby properties, said Sgt. Kasim Bikul of Perris Sheriff’s Station.
MEPs arrested Eduardo Javier Alvarez Villegas, 28, and Emma Villasenor Aguilar, 31.
“A loaded 9mm pistol and about 35 pounds of processed marijuana were in the master bedroom, which was accessible and occupied by three children under the age of six,” said Bikul. “The child protection service has been notified. The children were later released from the scene of a family member. “
It was unclear whether Villegas and / or Aguilar are parents of the children.
MPs seized 702 marijuana plants, approximately 100 pounds of processed marijuana, two loaded 9mm handguns, loose 9mm ammunition, two cell phones and $ 1,000 in cash, Bikul said. The plants were destroyed.
Villegas and Aguilar were later arrested and charged, respectively, on suspicion of child endangerment and marijuana offenses, he said.
Both were released later that day, according to the sheriff’s inmate file.
