NEWPORT-A call to investigate a father and his little boy allegedly shooting a BB gun at neighbors' houses led to three drug-related arrests, the Newport Police Department reported.

Patrolman Amy Gentry of the NPD said officers were dispatched to 412 8th St., in Newport, on Sunday, March 24 on a call of a little boy and his father allegedly shooting a BB gun at the neighbors' residences.

A lady that owns the residence invited officers to come in. A small child said his daddy was hiding in the residence, possibly in the attic, according to the report.

Officers knocked on a bedroom door in the residence, and Candi Leeper, 30, was allegedly lying in bed with her boyfriend. The room they were in smelled of marijuana, Gentry reported.
