Elaine Baker was already charged with possession of methamphetamine, possesion of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment. Now, she faces a count of possession with intent to deliver marijuana.
Officers say Baker called her son from the Clay County jail and asked him to get the pot out of the refrigerator, sell it and then post bond. Apparently, she didn't realize the telephone call was being monitored by the cops.
Authorities got a search warrant and found a small amount of marijuana in her home Monday afternoon. Baker's son, 18-year old Austin Tasich, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance.
