They say they noticed a marijuana plant in a pot and burnt marijuana cigarettes in plain view in the living room.

The sheriff’s office says the couple agreed to let the deputies search the home. Their five-year-old son was home at the time.

Detectives say they found four burnt marijuana cigarettes in the child’s room, mixed with candy and toys in a TV stand drawer.

Investigators say there were three bongs and two pipes on a closet shelf in the boy’s room.

Deputies say they found 11 pipes/smoking devices, two grinders, four plastic baggies with marijuana and one plastic baggie with cocaine in the couple’s bedroom.

In the living room, they allegedly found a plastic bag with Methamphetamine, a glass pipe with Meth residue, four baggies with Meth residue, a glass pipe and a wooden box with marijuana residue, a burnt marijuana cigarette and a marijuana plant growing in a pot.

All the items were within reach of the child, according to deputies.

Detectives say they seized a plastic baggie with 13 grams of marijuana, a burnt marijuana cigarette, a plastic baggie with Methamphetamine, a plastic baggie with Heroin residue, two cut straws, a scale and a Pyrex pipe and a metal pipe both with marijuana residue from the kitchen.

The lanai by the swimming pool featured two marijuana plants, according to deputies.

DCF took custody of the child and released him to a grandparent.

Laurent and Ray are charged with Child Neglect, Cultivation of Marijuana, Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Heroin, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Marijuana Over 20-Grams, and Possess of Narcotics Paraphernalia.
