( 4UMF NEWS ) Parents Planted Drugs On School Volunteer:
Police say Kent, 38, put a bag of prescription painkillers, marijuana and a marijuana pipe in the volunteer’s car, then called police to say he had seen her hide the drugs in her car.
Cops responded to the scene and found the drugs in the woman’s car. Surveillance footage shows Kent calling Irvine police from a hotel near his office in Newport Beach.
“She [the volunteer] was shocked,” Irvine Police Lt. Julia Engen told KABC-TV. “She had no idea where those items came from. Things just didn’t seem to add up.”
The Associated Press reports investigators began to eye the Easters when they learned the volunteer had been in class at the time Kent said she was hiding the drugs.
The Easters’ babysitter, Tiffany Pan, says she’s shocked by the allegations.
“They’re always so positive and happy, and I just can’t imagine them even doing anything like this,” Pan told KABC-TV.
The couple, charged with felony conspiracy and false imprisonment, face up to three years in prison if convicted, according to AP.
