Affidavit: Stepmom smoked marijuana day before reporting Lucas Hernandez missing

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) -- New information has emerged about the child endangerment charge Emily Glass, the stepmother of Lucas Hernandez, is being held on.

Glass reported the five-year-old missing on Feb. 17.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Glass told police the day before she made the report she had smoked marijuana.

Glass said she was cleaning the family's home, located near Lincoln and Edgemoor, when she went into the garage around 3:30 p.m. and "smoked a few bowls" of marijuana.

Glass told police she got hungry. So, she and her one-year-old daughter, only identified as MH, drove to Olive Garden for dinner.

Glass said she only stayed at Olive Garden for about an hour before driving back home with MH.

The court document says Glass consented to a search of her phone where police found texts on Facebook Messenger between her and her JH (Glass' husband, Jonathan Glass).

Police say the message stated Glass was going to smoke a couple of bowls of marijuana and go to Olive Garden using a gift card JH had sent her.

The document goes on to say Glass made two phone calls on Feb. 16 at 4:53 p.m. and 5:43 p.m. The phone calls were made from the area of Central and Rock, near where an Olive Garden is located.

A portion of the document has been redacted.

Glass is currently being held in the Sedgwick County jail on a single count of child endangerment. She will appear in court in court Wednesday afternoon to request her $50,000 bond be reduced.
