The Angelina County Sheriff's Office has filed charges and arrested a Diboll woman after her three-month-old child tested positive for meth.
Jennifer Welch Hebert, 32, is charged with state-jail felony endangering a child.
Angelina County Sheriff's
Office Investigator Tom Matthews says Child Protective Services reported a
suspicion of meth use in the home.
Hebert tested positive for
meth in a hair panel test on January 29 and the three-month-old tested positive
in the same test on Feb 7.
"Just by simple
touching the child's face, touching the child, holding the child, feeding the
child, she was also using drugs during the pregnancy of the child, so the child
could have also been exposed through the birthing process," said Matthews.
Matthews obtained a warrant for Hebert's arrest on Monday. She was booked into the Angelina County Jail on Tuesday, where she is waiting for her bail to be set.
