YAKIMA — A nurse at the Yakima County Jail is now an inmate after her arrest in a marijuana investigation.

The jail director says Michelle Warnick was arrested Friday when she arrived for work.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports sheriff’s detectives and Drug Enforcement Administration agents raided her Yakima home Friday and arrested her boyfriend, Bradley Marvin, and seized 117 marijuana plants. Warnick and Marvin appeared before a federal magistrate and were ordered held without bail for another hearing Wednesday.

Court documents say Warnick is a medical marijuana provider and Marvin is a patient.

The nurse came to the attention of investigators after her 9-year-old daughter was taken to an emergency room after unknowingly eating a marijuana brownie and feeling dizzy.
