TROY — Troy Police Department will be pressing charges on two individuals for allegedly selling edible marijuana or “edibles” found in various forms at their Jackson Street home on Friday.
Sarah Ritchie and Timothy Haynes-Housley, 26, both of Troy, were served a search warrant at their home located off of the Adams Street bridge by the Troy Police Department around 1:30 p.m. Friday.
According to Capt. Jeff Kunkleman, officers located marijuana-infused ice cream, cheesecakes and other pot-infused edibles inside the home. Detectives also found hashish oil and oil extraction items inside the home.
Capt. Kunkleman said the search warrant was served after an investigation which has been ongoing the last several months.
Specific charges had not been filed as of press time.
Three children under the age of 12 were also at the residence at the time of the warrant service. The children were placed into custody with a relative.
The state of Oregon legalized the sale of marijuana edibles for recreational use on Thursday. Twenty-four states and the District of Columbia have some form of legalization of marijuana in the United States.
