Mom Brings Bags of Marijuana Into Juvenile Probation Camp on Visit to Son, Cops Say

Bringing the love only a mother could provide, authorities claim that Rhonda J. Gonzales had several packages of marijuana with her when she visited her son this weekend at an L.A. County juvenile probation camp, authorities say.

How kind. Unfortunately for the chap, she wasn't able to share her medicine.

Sheriff's deputies had embarked on a crackdown after finding marijuana in the dorm rooms in recent months. And so they targeted Gonzales' purse ...

... on Saturday at Camp Glenn Rockey on Sycamore Canyon Road in San Dimas. The place gets as many as 70 visitors on weekends, according to sheriff's officials.

In recent months, because of the weed infestation, they've been targeting the cars, pockets and purses of loved ones who've come to see the juveniles at camp. Signs warn visitors that they're subject to searches.

Well, bingo. According to a sheriff's statement, deputies found bud wrapped in "bindles" on Gonzales, a 44-year-old from Pomona, after they asked to look through her bag:

The contraband included multiple bindles of marijuana along with a falsified medical marijuana card.

Nice try.

Gonzales was arrested on suspicion of trying to bring drugs into a lockup, deputies said. She also had an arrest warrant from Bellflower, they said. The mom was being held in lieu of $35,000 bail.

Next time, do what all loving mothers do: Bake a pie (with an awesome surprise at the center).
