Marathon – A woman was arrested Friday evening after deputies found marijuana in her van. Her child was turned over to the Department of Children and Families.
Deputy David Minor and Key Colony Beach Officer Kris Digiovanni responded to the end of Coco Plum Road at 7:15 p.m. where they found 29 year old Johanna Cisneros and her four year old son, who was running around with no clothes on, with sand on his face and body. Cisneros had a black eye which she said was from her husband hitting her.
When the officers began questioning Cisneros, she told a number of different stories about who she was, where she was from, who she was with and what she was doing in the Keys. The van she and her son were traveling with was dirty, with trash littering the inside and ants and roaches crawling around the interior. A check on the van’s registration came back to a man in Palm Beach County she said was her husband.
She told the officers there was a gun in the car and gave them permission to retrieve it from the area of the center console. Instead of finding a gun in that location, however, Deputy Minor found a plastic bag with 93 grams of marijuana inside. Cisneros was placed under arrest.
She was taken to jail, charged with possession of marijuana and cruelty to a child. The child was turned over to DCF.
