LAYTON -- A woman who sold spice from her apartment while caring for her children is now in jail facing charges, police said.
Stacie Ann Waldron, 39, was booked on two counts of child endangerment, two counts of distribution of spice in a drug free zone, one count of possession of spice with the intent to distribute and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
The owner of the four-plex apartment building at 1708 N. Avalon Drive, Layton, waved down a police officer who was driving by, said Layton Police Lt. Shawn Horton.
The owner told the officer he was doing a walk-through of the building when he smelled spice coming out of one of the apartments, Horton said.
As the police officer approached the building two men came out. When both men were searched, police found spice and drug paraphernalia in their possession. When questioned by the officer the men admitted they had just bought the spice from Waldron, Horton said.
The officer then knocked on the door and talked to Waldron, who admitted to selling the spice. Another man was also inside the apartment, as were two children. Police confiscated 30 grams of spice, $195 in cash and drug paraphernalia.
The men received citations for having spice and drug paraphernalia.
Waldron was arrested and booked in jail and is being held in lieu of a $10,000 bail.
The Division of Child and Family Services is also investigating the case, Horton said.
The Davis County Attorney's Office is reviewing the case before filing formal charges in 2nd District Court.
