A housekeeper became dizzy and was hospitalized after eating a pot brownie left inside an Orland Park home.
A 22-year-old man and a 23-year-old man, both from Orland Park, were cited by police on June 7 for reckless conduct after the pair held a sleepover where they had brownies allegedly made with marijuana, according to police.
The 57-year-old housekeeper was unhurt and released from the hospital, police said. She told officers a urine test came back positive for marijuana but she didn't want to prosecute the two men.
Orland Park police came to the home at about 10:30 a.m. in the 9100 block of Kensington Way, according to a report. At that time, the housekeeper was feeling faint and dizzy. She told police the brownie tasted like it had marijuana inside.
The parents of the 22-year-old man, who lived at the Kensington Way home, were overseas on vacation. The man said some of his friends slept over the previous night, the report states. All of his friends, except for the 23-year-old man, already had left.
Both men had refused to tell officers if the brownies had marijuana, despite requests from hospital staff who needed to know what was in them, according to the report.
One of the men retrieved three Tupperware containers full of fresh brownies, police said. The desserts had a "very strong" smell of marijuana coming from them. The two men were arrested and agreed to talk with police about what really happened with the laced brownies. However, one man refused to sign a written confession and was unhelpful when questioned. Both men were issued municipal violations and are due on July 9 for a hearing at the Orland Park Municipal Center.
