SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Murray father and his 19-year-old son are charged with running a marijuana dealing operation.

Prosecutors filed the charges last week in 3rd District Court.

Court documents say detectives seized pipes, several plastic bags containing some sort of residue and a glass bong in an August raid on the home where the 63-year-old man and his son lived.

Detectives also found a scale, about 13 and a half grams of marijuana and packaging material.

Prosecutors allege that the man buys between one-fourth of an ounce and two ounces of marijuana each day for the father and son to sell, and that the son may have been smoking pot since the seventh or eighth grade.

Both are charged with unlawful distribution of a controlled substance, child endangerment and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
