Trevor Miller (not pictured above), a 17-year-old World of Warcraft fan and general delinquent from Chicago stole several credit cards – and then goofed by using them to buy games and virtual items online from his home.
Something tells me his parents won’t exactly reprimand him too strongly – because when the long arm of the law came around asking questions, they stumbled on his parents’ marijuana farm. What a dope.
Police entered the house with a search warrant looking for evidence that Trevor was using the stolen credit cards – but they found something even more interesting – three large marijuana plants inside, and a further 3 outside that he and his parents used to make a bit of extra cabbage.
Clever Trevor was charged with identity theft, burglary, unlawful use of a credit card and computer fraud – along with a nice charge of unlawful production of marijuana plants. His parents , James, 52, and Cindy, 50, got rapped with the marijuana production charge – and they now get to share a bonding experience – in court.
