ALLIANCE, OH (WOIO) - A mother and daughter are locked up for allegedly selling marijuana supplied by a former "Unsolved Mysteries" criminal.
Alliance Police Department's Special Investigation's Unit and Patrol Division launched the investigation and executed a search warrant at 337 South Street in Alliance, Ohio Friday evening.
Justine Weimer, 49-years-old, her 29-year-old daughter Amber Shriver and Shriver's 6-year-old daughter were inside the home when the search warrant was executed.
Weimer and Shriver were smoking pot inside the home when the police entered. Charges for child endangering and drug abuse could be filed within the next couple of days since they were both smoking in the child's presence.
The child was released to another family member.
Officers recovered approximately 3-pounds of marijuana belonging to Weimer - who admittedly was supplying her daughter, Amber Shriver. Amber would then distribute the marijuana down to other street level dealers and users themselves.
Weimer acted as the business "head", utilizing her skills as an accountant.
Officers seized money, two large screen television sets, a computer system, miscellaneous office equipment, a Chevy Trail Blazer and a Cadillac. All items are believed to be ether proceeds of illegal drug sales or used in the commission of the crimes.
Weimer reportedly told Alliance Police Officers that she worked for former "Unsolved Mysteries" criminal Neil Con handling his financial aspects of his business Gott Transport.
Con would allegedly pay Weimer with large amounts of marijuana instead of a normal paycheck. Weimer would sell that marijuana to her daughter, who then sold it to other dealers and users locally.
Charges for Conspiracy to Trafficking in Marijuana will be pursued against Gott with the prosecutor's office.
Weimer and Shriver were transported to the Stark County Jail pending their initial appearance on Monday at 1PM and both were smacked with a $50,000 dollar bond.
