  • POS both of them!! Hope that excuse for a mother never gets her kid back

    • I don’t care for parents who mix drugs in their families and have kids. Taking children away from their families is a hardship on the child – let’s hope a safe and sane family member steps up to the plate for the child.

      • as a foster parent of a child removed from a meth house, I can assure you almost any option is better for the child than staying in the meth house. we take it week by week, the damage is that bad.

  • I’m praying for her 6yr.old.

  • Relative of officer quenell from the drug task force?

  • Um, is that all people do up around there, Humboldt, Mendocino, get busted for drugs?

  • I wonder if this Quenell person is related to a HCSO Deputy Quenell. This crap hits ever family. I swear. But, in my book Selling is another level all together.

  • fuckwalterwhite.com

    Yuk. Another fkn junkie/dealer with a kid in the house. When will people stop dragging down the lives they create?

    Hopefully some cellphones will be investigated and find where they get their drugs.

  • Thar is hope mabe this is a good thing for them. A chance to make a better life, and realize they have a problem. Time will tell only the person with the problem can change. And kids have no place in the middle of drugs, they cant learn nothening that way. I wish them the best God bless

  • The only thing would be better is if they were high end drug dealers may be the source of the crank ,and heroin ,but no they’re just low-level scumbags I wish they would bust somebody with pounds of the s*** but low-level scumbag better than nothing.

    • So good so far….. HELLO? Can you hear me? It’s the last 40 years. Remember me? Well we have more in jail than ever, more OD’s than ever, stronger drugs than ever… I think your approach is downright brilliant. Not to mention effective, cost efficient.. what am I leaving out…
