COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS -- Police say a 44-year-old dad has been arrested after his teenage kids told police he was smoking too much pot.

Cottonwood Heights Police Sgt. Scott Peck tells the Deseret News that the man's 15-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter turned him in because they thought his residence always smelled funny and they didn't like him drinking and smoking marijuana.

Police say the daughter called police to turn him in, then talked with officers outside the home. As they were talking, the dad sent her a text message asking her to come back inside. The officers had her send a reply to ask him to come outside. When he did, he was arrested.
