A mum who boasted to neighbours that she had the ‘best Christmas tree in the world’ was busted by police – who revealed that it wasn’t a fir tree at all, but a gigantic marijuana plant.
As Angelica Navarro Pereira, 50, was dragged away by police, her neighbour Renato Quinonez Alfaro, 55, said: ‘Thinking about it, she didn’t invite me in to see her tree.
‘When I spoke to her yesterday she said her children were going to really enjoy Christmas this year and that she had the best tree in the world.
