LOUISVILLE, Ky -- A Louisville mother has been arrested after police said she hid a gun and a large amount of marijuana in an oven.

This happened Tuesday afternoon in a home in the 4600 block of Plane Tree Drive in Okolona.

According to the police report, Shantina McDonald's son was cooking food when the oven caught fire. The son told police that while the fire was burning, he heard several loud popping sounds.

After firefighters put the flames out, they said they discovered a handgun that had been destroyed in the fire and the remnants of what appeared to be at least one pound of marijuana.

Police said they saw several rounds that had been fired in the oven.

McDonald is charged with wanton endangerment and trafficking marijuana.
