    A Manassas woman and her boyfriend were arrested for allegedly giving illegal drugs to the woman’s young daughter over several years.

    Moore, 51, and Johnson, 50, had been giving Moore’s 15-year-old daughter marijuana since the girl was 10, according to police.

    The couple is charged with distribution of drugs to a person under 18, possession of cocaine and possession of marijuana.
