The sheriff’s office says the suspect was tracked through phone records.

A medical marijuana patient arrested in Yakima Monday told authorities he provided marijuana to his three young children.
Troy Mallard Craig, 32, said two of his children also have medical marijuana cards, according to a complaint filed today in U.S. District Court.
Agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration executed a search warrant at Craig's home in the 3300 block of Barge Street about 4:15 p.m. and seized 67 marijuana plants, bags of processed marijuana, a digital scale and several medical marijuana cards.
Craig said he'd been growing marijuana for about two years and giving it to five or six friends in exchange for “donations.”
