October 18, 2017 GMT

Two Brave parents are facing child endangerment and marijuana possession charges after Greene Regional police said their 4-year-old son was in their vehicle during an alleged drug transaction in September.Police said that William Jack Jaggie, 28, and Labrea Lynn Kisner, 22, both of 124 Orchard Ave., were in a vehicle with their son and two other adults, who were allegedly trying to sell drugs Sept. 28.Jaggie and Kisner both face misdemeanor charges of child endangerment, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and conspiracy to deliver drugs. Charges were filed Tuesday at District Judge Lee Watson’s office, and both are now awaiting a preliminary hearing.Police had earlier received information that a drug deal would take place at Jaggie and Kisner’s home. Jaggie would be driving a silver SUV and the sale would happen when they returned home, police said.Instead, the vehicle stopped at a home in the 400 block of Toms Run Road in Wayne Township. Four adults were in the SUV when police stopped it in a driveway.Under the backseat were “several individual packages of suspected marijuana packaged for sale,” according to the criminal complaint. There was also a digital scale, a bag of suspected marijuana, loose marijuana from a torn bag and a glass crack pipe on the floor.A search at their Orchard Avenue home found drug paraphernalia and two small bags of marijuana. Greene Regional police wrote on their department’s Facebook page that knives and other weapons also were in the home, which was dirty and unfit for habitation.Because of the state of the home and the 4-year-old being taken with them during the alleged drug deal, Children and Youth Services was contacted and the child’s grandfather took custody of him, police said.The two other adults in the backseat with the child, Tristan Michael Allen, 18, and his father Christopher Michael Allen, 39, both of Waynesburg, were charged Sept. 29 with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, criminal conspiracy and recklessly endangering another person.Both are being held at the Greene County jail while awaiting their preliminary hearings before Watson.
