A Brownsville, Texas couple is behind bars this evening after a concerned pizza delivery man led police to their home. Investigators found more than 400 pounds of marijuana inside after being granted verbal permission to enter the apartment.
Jimmy Manrrique, public information officer for the Brownsville Police Department, said the delivery man became concerned after noticing a strong marijuana odor and several children inside the apartment.
Baltazar de la Garza and Desiree Izaguirre also admitted to smoking marijuana in front of their six children. They've both been charged with possession of marijuana and child endangerment.
The six children are now staying with relatives.
