Mammoth man arrested after taking child with him on prescription drug sales transactions

A 27-year-old Mammoth man was arrested on March 4 on suspicion of several drug related charges, along with a "willful cruelty to a child" charge, after the man was found by law enforcement to be openly smoking marijuana in his home in front of his two-year-old son and after he admitted that he had taken the child with him during prescription narcotic sale transactions.

He was arrested by MLPD Officers and transported to the police station without incident.

During the arrest process, the man admitted he had purchased prescription narcotics and turned around and sold them on several different occasions, and stated that even though it was stupid, he had taken his two-year-old son with him during the prescription narcotic sale transactions.

All charges are pending with the Mono County District Attorney’s Office.
