KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — Kenosha County prosecutors say the mother of two brothers accused of making vaping cartridges containing THC oil was aware of the illegal activity and allowed some products to be manufactured at her real estate office.
A criminal complaint that charges Courtney Huffhines with manufacturing or delivering THC alleges some of the vape cartridges were assembled in her Realty Executives office before the operation was moved to a condo rented by one of Huffhines’ sons. Investigators say the 43-year-old mother knowingly participated in the illegal operation.
Authorities previously arrested 20-year-old Tyler Huffhines and 23-year-old Jacob Huffhines. Hundreds of illnesses around the country have been linked to vaping, but authorities have not singled out a product or ingredient as the culprit.
Courtney Huffhines’ attorney did not immediately return a message left before office hours Wednesday.
