Gamer With Stolen Credit Card Leads Cops To Parents’ Pot

A kid in suburban Chicago boosted a credit card and bought some games and virtual currency online. When the cops showed up to ask some questions, they found his folks', uh, "Victory Garden".

This news comes out of Buffalo Grove, which you might remember is where some kid called the cops after his parents took away his Xbox 360. Same suburb, different family this time. Trevor Miller, 17, allegedly used a credit card stolen from a car burgled back in June to buy some online games as well as "virtual gold coins". I guess that's better than the actual ones, which I always took as a synonym for Durex rubbers.

Anyhow, Johnny Law traced the purchases to Trev (may I call you Trev?) and showed up at his house to ask some questions. Inside, they spotted the stickiest of the icky, and more outside. Mum and Dad got jammed up for "unlawful production of marijuana", while Trev faces that count plus unlawful credit card use and computer fraud charges.

Lesson: You grow pot, you'd better be purer than Caesar's wife. And your kids, too.

    or at least grow it in the shed or something, jeez. what a bunch of muppets.

    I can think of 420 reasons why this is fucked

      Would you care to list them? Please? :)

    lol man the parents would be pissed!

    sounds like every one got what they deserved i like happy ending :)

      So they all got hand-jobs?

      Jail time sounds like the logical punishment for growing a plant, I agree.

        A restricted and potentially dangerous plant, yes.

          Dangerous? You fear for your snack cupboard? :P

            Haha, but no, after seeing how it's affected my brother and friends, I fear what it does to my brain.

    if i were in this kids situation i'd be more scared of what my parents would do to me instead of the guys in prison..

    moral of the story, dont buy pixels
