I.E. sex offender caught giving minors pot
LANDERS, Calif. (KABC) -- A 48-year-old registered sex offender in Landers was arrested after police found he had been giving marijuana to minors.
Upon investigation, police found out that Henderson frequently visited a bus stop near a local school. The juveniles told officers that Henderson offered to give them rides, and once they were inside the car, Henderson would smoke pot with them.

After obtaining a search warrant and searching Henderson's house, officials found an outdoor and underground marijuana growing operation. They found more than 100 marijuana plants and several pounds of marijuana at Henderson's residence.
He was booked into the Morongo Jail, where he posted $50,000 bail.
