ALDEN, N.Y. (WIVB) – A one-year-old was inside a marijuana smoke-filled apartment, according to the Erie County Sheriff’s Office.
A deputy responded to complaints of a mother smoking pot at a home on Buckwheat Road, in Alden, just after midnight on Saturday. A deputy said there was evidence to prove 26-year-old Stephanie Marquardt smoked the drug in the presence of her child.
The deputy called the fire department and Child Protective Services to have the child examined. The child was released to the custody of the child’s grandparents.
Marquardt was charged with misdemeanor acting in a manner to injure a child less than 17.
