If They Just Could Have Mellowed Out

A sibling spat led police to nealry 60 marijuana plants in Muerrieta, according to authorities.

After responding to a report of a fight that involved a brother and sister, police discovered the plants in the garage of the home, a sergeant said Monday.

Carlos Licona, 30, was arrested, as was his sister, Nicole, 19, and a 45- year-old relative, Gloria Licona Eubanks, at about 6:15 p.m. Sunday in the 39800  block of Saint Honore Drive. They share the home with a 7-year-old child, said Sgt. Julie Hoxmeier.

Eubanks is the grandmother of the child.

Nicole Licona and Eubanks were booked on suspicion of marijuana cultivation and child endangerment, as was Eubanks, who also was booked for allegedly resisting arrest. They posted $5,000 bail and are due in court Aug. 24, according to  sheriff's records.

Carlos was booked on a prior failure-to-appear warrant in connection  with a DUI arrest, authorities said. He is being held in lieu of $10,000 bail,  pending arraignment Wednesday at the Southwest Justice Center.

The child was returned to its mother, who does not live at the home,  Hoxmeier said.  

Details of the alleged disturbance involving the brother and sister were  not immediately available.
