Two North Little Rock residents face charges after drugs and marijuana plants were found in an apartment where two children were present, police said.

Lamont Boyd, 32, and Carrissa Matlock, 28, were arrested on several drug-related charges, records show. Both also face counts of second-degree endangering the welfare of minor.

Officers stopped Boyd, a parolee, for not using a turn signal Saturday afternoon, according to a North Little Rock Police Department report.

Marijuana residue was found in his vehicle, and he also had a large amount of cash, authorities said.

During a later search of Boyd’s apartment in the 5700 block of Sonora Drive, officers found “an active marijuana grow” operation with “several live plants in a bedroom,” the report states.

Authorities said about 1 pound of marijuana was seized from two backpacks that contained jars with multiple individually packaged bags. A loaded handgun was also found in a bedroom.

Two children — ages 3 and 6 — were reportedly inside the residence when officers responded.

Matlock and Boyd remained at the Pulaski County jail as of Monday morning, and bail had not been set, according to an online inmate roster.

    So many vague, inflammatory words: large amont of cash (over $100 ?), gun in the bedroom (2nd amendment anyone?), children in the home (seems normal so far), active grow operation (rival to drug lord Pablo escovar? No? 1 lb? Not impressed). Just get the dispensaries going and this will not be an issue. For all we know, they could be helping out the local cancer center patients with street cannabis until Legislators and the court follow the law. We need a people's referendum to make it legal to grow your own if you are not within 15 miles of a legal dispensary, similar to Nevada's law. The sad thing is the state is going to make more money destroying this family via courts and cps than these people made with their 'live marijuana operation'.
