VERNON PARISH, LA (KPLC) -
Two Rosepine residents are facing charges after a 10-month-old child tested positive for methamphetamine, according to a news release from Vernon Parish authorities.
Heather Jenkins, 22, and Michael Moore, 55, are accused in the case.
According to a news release from the Vernon Parish Sheriff Sam Craft, Vernon Parish Narcotics Task Force investigators were contacted Jan. 17 by Beauregard Memorial Hospital staff in reference to the child.
Craft said detectives interviewed Jenkins, the child's mother. Craft said Jenkins told detectives that she had been in a home where methamphetamine was used and that the child "may have inadvertently" been exposed to the narcotic.
"Jenkins stated that she had received and used methamphetamine at the residence in the past," Craft said in the release.
Craft said detectives then traveled to a home on J.P. Calcote Road in the Rosepine area where 55-year-old Michael Moore was interviewed.
Craft said during the interview, detectives seized 1.75 ounces of methamphetamine with a street value of $5,760.
Craft said Moore told detectives the child was in the same room while he and others smoked methamphetamine.
Jenkins was arrested and booked with possession of methamphetamine and cruelty to a juvenile. Her bond was set at $35,000.
Moore was charged with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal possession of a firearm while in possession of controlled dangerous substances, distribution of methamphetamine and possession of schedule IV with the intent to distribute.
Craft said Moore was out on bond for prior methamphetamine charges at the time of the incident. Bond for Moore was set at $42,000. He remains in the Vernon Parish Jail.
