Pot on MySpace ...
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — A teen arrested after police found his pictures of potted marijuana plants and drug paraphernalia posted on MySpace.com will serve 30 days in jail.
Moua Yang, 18, of Sheboygan, pleaded no contest Friday in Sheboygan County Circuit Court to felony marijuana manufacturing and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police monitoring for gang activity traced the information to him from the popular networking Web site. Authorities said a label on the picture of potted pot plants read: “My Mary Jane thats growin in my closet right now.”
Authorities then found three potted marijuana plants in a basement closet at Yang’s residence, the criminal complaint said.
Police were monitoring another Web site when they saw that Yang had posted pictures of weapons and drug gear and had bragged about the plants in his house, the complaint said.
Yang was also placed on four years probation and had his driver’s license suspended for six months. Judge Terence Bourke also ordered him to pay a $233 fine and undergo counseling deemed appropriate by his probation agent.
