Man, Mother Busted For Making Drugs In Home

SUTTER, Calif (CBS13) — A Sutter County resident is accused of transforming his parent’s home into a drug factory and enlisting the help of his mother to do it, according to authorities.

Sutter County officials said  41-year-old parolee Robert Cardwell admitted he made methamphetamines and grew marijuana on the property after narcotic enforcement team (NET-5) members found the illicit drugs during a raid.

“He basically confessed and said it was his, even though we found that stuff in the mom’s bedroom,” said NET-5 Commander Mike Hudson.

Investigators said 64-year-old Sandra Carpenter was arrested a week later for allegedly helping produce honey oil, “which is a street term for concentrated cannabis or hashish,” Hudson said.

Carpenter told investigators she was using the marijuana and honey oil for medicinal purposes, authorities said.

Sandra Carpenter has bailed out of jail, but Cardwell is still incarcerated.
