LUFKIN, Texas (AP) - East Texas police have arrested a man and woman who they say dumped a gallon-sized bag of marijuana into a day care trash can.

Fifty-year-old Frederick Ruth and 40-year-old Youlanda Whitaker have been charged with possessing marijuana in a drug-free zone and possessing a dangerous drug.

Lufkin police say they received a report Monday of two people bagging up marijuana in a car. Officers found it in the Noah’s Ark Early Education Center Day Care and say Ruth and Whitaker were inside.

They say Ruth turned over a small bag of marijuana. Officers found the larger bag in a bathroom after employees reported seeing Whitaker enter with a shopping bag.

Police didn’t say why the suspects were at the day care. It wasn’t immediately clear if they have attorneys.
