In her interview with police, Tammy Lawles allegedly acknowledged that she knows her husband deals marijuana, with numerous individuals regularly coming and going from the residence for the purpose of obtaining the illicit drug. She also allegedly admitted to smoking the drug and to using Clonazepam without a prescription. Moreover, based on her statements, police gleaned the very real possibility that the minor in the home had access to marijuana.
Police also interviewed a third suspect, this one alleged to be one of Michael’s regular customers. This third witness allegedly admitted to police that his wife is a regular marijuana smoker and that the Lawleses are his source of supply. The witness allegedly clarified that his wife is the buyer and that she has purchased from both Lawleses on several occasions.
Both suspects are currently being held at the Decatur County Jail without bond, awaiting an initial court appearance.
