The Charles City police arrested 40-year-old Melinda Rose Lensing for attempting to elicit help from an under-age girl to sell marijuana with her. This girl was her daughter.
Lensing is charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. She is also facing charges of conspiring with an under-age girl for the purposes of delivering a controlled substance – which is a felony.
A cell phone was combed through and the police found evidence of the two conspiring to sell drugs.
Lensing’s preliminary hearing will be held Jan. 27.
