The juvenile probation camp known as Camp Glenn Rockey is located in the city of San Dimas, California, and they’ve been finding more marijuana in dorm rooms lately

​Hold the phone, we have a new entrant for Mother of the Year. Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies arrested a woman trying to visit her son in a juvenile probation camp Saturday after they found marijuana and what they claimed was a fake medical marijuana card while searching her purse, according to department officials.

Rhonda J. Gonzales, 44, of Pomona, was visiting Camp Glenn Rockey, a camp for juvenile offenders in San Dimas, to visit her son who is a ward at the camp, according to the Sheriff’s Department, reports Rick Rojas at the Los Angeles Times.

All visitors to the camp are subject to search for weapons, drugs or other illegal items. Camp officials said they had increased the screenings after finding more drugs — especially marijuana — in dorm rooms in recent months.
Signs at the facility warn visitors — of whom there are as many as 70 on weekends — that they’ll be searched for drugs, reports Dennis Romero at LA Weekly.
When Gonzales was searched, sheriff’s deputies said they found “several bundles” of marijuana and the allegedly fake medical card, and also discovered that she had an outstanding warrant in Bellflower. She was arrested on the outstanding warrant and on suspicion of bringing “narcotics” into a jail facility.
Gonzales was booked at Century Regional Detention Facility with a $35,000 bail.
