Child finds marijuana baggies inside 'Magic Mixer' baking set
(KRCR) - A California family said their Christmas was ruined when a 9-year-old girl opened her new baking set and found two bags of marijuana inside.
Tyra Hills says she bought the Magic Mixer at Walmart and wrapped it for her niece, Aramis, to open on Christmas morning.
"I was so excited! This was my favorite gift cause I love cooking," said Aramis. But at the bottom of the box, she found the two bags of pot.
Her grandmother took the item to the police department, filed a report, then went to Walmart the next day. They offered her a refund.
"I told them no, that's not the point, we're not down here to get our money back or to get a new Magic Mixer, my thing is I want to talk to the corporate office first and see what they would do and then get them pulled off the shelf," grandmother Tammie Hills said.
She said she was disappointed because everyone she spoke to was nonchalant about the discovery that had ruined her granddaughters Christmas.
"[Aramis] didn't know what to do, she was shocked," Tammie Hills said. "Our family, we don't, we don't do drugs, we don't do anything."
Police aren't commenting, but a Walmart statement to local media outlet KRCR said:
We take the situation very seriously and want our customers to have a safe experience every time they're in our stores. If the alleged incident is proven true, we will work closely with law enforcement throughout their investigation and must refer all further questions to local police.
