Gamer Using Stolen Credit Card Gets His Family Busted For Growing Marijuana

The Miller Family

A Buffalo Grove teen is learning a hard lesson after using stolen a credit card to play some online games. It’s not the same teen from Buffalo Grove who called 911 on his parents — but this teen’s parents aren’t too happy with him either. Their son led police right to their marijuana plants.

It started back in July when someone reported their car had been broken into, and their credit card had been stolen. Police were investigating and purchases started being made on the stolen card. It was then that they had enough information to obtain a search warrant.

Their warrant brought them to the door of 17 year old Trevor Miller who had used the card to purchase online games as well as some “virtual gold coins.” While cops were on the property, they spotted three marijuana plants inside, and another three plants outside.

Trevor was charged with identity theft, burglary, unlawful use of a credit card, computer fraud, and unlawful production of marijuana plants. While his parents were only charged with unlawful production of marijuana.

It was probably in the family’s best interest for Trevor to not steal a credit card and use it online  — but kids will be kids.

    Miller? .. shit that’s my last name, but at least I’m not dumb enough to do something like that.. both do something that illegal and to lead the cops right to it. I would think if your parents deal weed they would be a little more smart around their kid saying.. “this is illegal.. don’t bring cops here, don’t use the stolen credit cards we have”
