SAC CITY, Iowa | A woman accused of growing marijuana with her son has pleaded not guilty.
Glenda Turnquist, 58, of Schaller, Iowa, entered her written plea Tuesday in Sac County District Court to charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, failure to affix a drug tax stamp and dependent adult abuse.
Turnquist and her son, Keegan Cross, were arrested March 30 after Sac County Sheriff's deputies executed a search warrant at a home in the 500 block of Perth Street and found 80 marijuana plants, growing lamps, watering pumps, potting soil and fertilizer. Officers determined that Turnquist knew of the operation and had helped buy the equipment.
Cross, 34, of Schaller, has pleaded not guilty to the same three charges as Turnquist.
