Three Year Old Tests Positive for Meth



A Marion woman has been arrested after her 3 year-old child tests positive for methamphetamine.  25 year-old Jessie Green was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with felony negligent child abuse causing serious physical injury. Investigators went to Green's Spaulding Woods Apartment home with social workers, who had been tipped off the children could be in harms way.  Investigators suspected someone was cooking meth in the home where the children, ages eight and three, lived.  The Department of Social Services took the children into their custody after finding the home was unsafe.  Drug tests on the children revealed the three year-old had high levels of methamphetamine exposure.  Their mother also tested positive for meth. Green is now in the McDowell County Detention Center and being held under a $75,000 bond.
