Young sisters turn in father after finding meth

TWIN FALLS, Idaho — Police in south-central Idaho say two sisters both under 15 turned in their father after conducting their own investigation and determining he was using methamphetamine.

Police told The Times-News the girls were familiar with parental drug abuse after their mother became addicted to meth and the girls ended up in the custody of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

Police describe the girls as very upset earlier this month when reporting they saw illegal narcotics in their father’s shop.

Police obtained a warrant and during a search found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

The father was arrested on suspicion of two misdemeanor counts of injury to a child as well felony and misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance.
