Oak Creek police: 'Skunk' smell leads to marijuana in toddler's shoes

Jan. 22, 2013

A strange smell coming from a pair of shoes resulted in the discovery of a hidden cache of marijuana last week.

According to the Oak Creek police report:

A resident called police about 4:30 p.m. Jan. 14 after her daycare provider in the 8100 block of South Wildwood Drive told her that her 2-year-old's shoes smelled "like skunk."

The resident later found a plastic bag containing a small amount of marijuana in the shoe.

Officers questioned the child's father, who had dropped his son at daycare that day, and he stated his son's shoes were bought at a rummage sale and he had no idea where the marijuana came from.
