Southlake couple busted with 55 marijuana plants in home


A couple in Southlake have been arrested and their grandchild taken by Child Protective Services after police found marijuana plants in their home.

Police received a welfare check request for the infant, alleging that marijuana was being consumed in the home.

After acting on the request, police suspected there was cannabis in the home and obtained a warrant, which led them to 55 plants in the Dallas suburb home.

Julia Elizabeth Thacker, 51, and Keith Edward Fields, 52, were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana following a Jan. 12 visit by the Southlake Police Department.

The child was placed with a family member by Child Protective Services.

Each face a felony charge of possession of more than five pounds but less than 50 pounds, which is punishable by a minimum of two years in prison, with a maximum of 10 years and a $10,000 fine.
