GRAHAM, N.C. (AP/WNCN) – Sheriff’s deputies in North Carolina have filed multiple charges against the mother of a 21-month-old child after saying they found methamphetamine near a baby bottle.
The Alamance County Sheriff’s Office says its deputies were trying to serve a warrant at a home on Sunday, the Winston-Salem Journal reports.
Kyle Elizabeth Hollingsworth, 27, allowed deputies inside to search for her live-in boyfriend, according to deputies.
While searching, deputies found a bottle containing meth less than a foot from a half-full baby bottle.
Hollingsworth admitted that her child was drinking from the bottle in the same bed prior to the deputies’ arrival, officials said.
She was arrested on several charges, including felony possession of methamphetamine and misdemeanor child abuse.
Hollingsworth was jailed on a $25,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in court Monday.
She was no longer listed on the Alamance County Jail website Monday night.
