Police: Mother arrested after infant tests positive for meth


ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — A 27-year-old South Carolina woman was arrested after police say her infant son tested positive for methamphetamine and cocaine.

Records show Caitlin Teague Rohn, of Rock Hill, was booked Saturday into the York County Detention Center on felony neglect charges.

The Herald reports police found meth in Rohn’s purse during a traffic stop with her son in the car. Court records show Rohn initially was charged with felony drug possession.

Officials say the South Carolina Department of Social Services placed the baby into protective custody and ordered drug testing of the child, whose age wasn’t released.

A police report says tests showed Rohn’s infant son had cocaine, cocaine metabolites, methamphetamine and amphetamines in his system.

Police then arrested Rohn for neglect.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Rohn has a lawyer.
