An 11-year-old boy was so sick of smelling the pot his parents were smoking took pictures of their stash and had them sent to police, according to cops.

The Minnesota boy told police his mom and stepfather smoked the drug constantly and that he often complained, but to no avail. After the photos were sent, drug agents served a search warrant on their home in Ravenna Township near Hastings and arrested Heidi Siebenaler, a Dakota County probation supervisor, and her husband, Mark Siebenaler. The allegedly found eight pounds of the drug in the master bedroom, according to KMSP-TV.

"These allegations raise moral concerns and legal concerns," said Washington County Attorney Pete Orput, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. "It's disappointing when someone in law enforcement gets caught breaking the law. In this case it is particularly disappointing."

A criminal complaint says the boy took the matter to his biological father, who told him to take photos  of the marijuana. The father then forwarded the photos to authorities.

Mark Siebenaler said he smokes marijuana for medicinal purposes, which is not legal in Minnesota.

"I smoke marijuana and I'm not ashamed to say it," he told KMSP-TV.
