Courtney Lacy was arrested for child neglect and other drug charges after deputies determined she smelled of marijuana and left two children in a van filled with drug paraphernalia and other forms of contraband.
The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office posted the details of this incident on their official Facebook page.
“On Friday at approximately 2:40 p.m., Seminole County Sheriff’s deputies were conducting active foot patrols at the Growing Tree Daycare located at 900 Dodd. Rd., in unincorporated Casselberry.
A female later identified as Courtney Lacy, was observed by deputies emitting a strong odor of marijuana. Deputies then witnessed Lacy exit the daycare with a toddler as she got into a van. Out of concern for the child, deputies approached the car window and the smell of marijuana became stronger. Deputies then noticed a second child in the van that was left unattended while Courtney Lacy picked up the toddler. Deputies asked Lacy to exit the vehicle and conducted a search. Several razor blades and knives were found in reach of the children, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were also found throughout the front of the vehicle.
Courtney Lacy was charged with Child Neglect, Marijuana Possession, and Possession of Drug Equipment. She was booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility and remains incarcerated on a $6000 bond.”
I’d like to point out the diligent policing that was involved by these heroes who saved these children from unimaginable harm that was undoubtedly headed their way as a result of Courtney Lacy. Great job Seminole County Sheriff’s Deputies!
