Idaho Couple Found Passed Out with Marijuana and Baby in Home
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A baby has been taken into protective custody and the infant’s 18-year-old mother and her 20-year-old boyfriend arrested after police found all three unresponsive in a home with more than an ounce of marijuana. Authorities tell the Idaho Statesman that Britany Renea Korom and Joshua Ray Pedroza were found in a bedroom Thursday and the baby in a portable crib in the front room.
Police say the child was treated for severe diaper rash at a hospital. Police say they responded to a report by a citizen about the three being unconscious, and it took several tries to wake Korom and Pedroza. Korom faces a felony charge of injury to a child and misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Pedroza faces charges of possession of marijuana and probation violations.
