A Kokomo woman was arrested Wednesday after her 2-year-old daughter tested positive for methamphetamine, police said.
Heather M. Roe, 25, was preliminarily charged with neglect after police were called to a home in the 1700 block of N. Market St. to check on the welfare of the girl.
When officers began questioning Roe, they said she told them that her daughter had accidentally drank from a cup containing methamphetamine left on the counter of the home she was visiting.
The girl, who also had marks on her face, tested positive for the drug at a local hospital, police said. She was taken into state custody. Roe also faces a charge of illegal possession of anhydrous ammonia, an ingredient used in the manufacture of meth, in connection with a 2008 arrest.
Now, I don't usually point out grammatical errors and such, especially from fellow bloggers and commenters, but the guy who wrote this is supposed to be a journalist.
had accidentally drank
What's wrong with Indiana journalists and Indiana readers?
The other thing I can't help but notice is, as anyone who has ever cared for a 2-year-old knows, you give them downers not meth. What is wrong with Indiana mothers?
What's your opinion? Is the State of Indiana, which is well known for its backward gun attitudes, also suffering from other social ills? Do you see Indiana as perhaps taking over the top spot on the ridicule scale. Alabama and Mississippi have long enjoyed that popularity, but I think Indiana is on the move.
