Officials in Texas say they have arrested three people after a 2-month-old girl living in the house was found to have had injection marks on her body and tested positive for heroin.
San Angelo police say they responded to a home on Saturday after receiving a report of an unresponsive infant.
The infant was then taken to an area hospital were nurses found that the infant had track marks on her arms, her legs, and on her head. After testing the child’s urine, nurses found that the child had heroin in her system.
The child was then transferred to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth for treatment where authorities declined to comment on her condition.
Though authorities declined to give an update on the child’s condition, they did tell reporters that the infant had been born at home in August and that she never received any kind of medical care.
Authorities also noted that while executing a search warrant on the family’s property, they found small quantities of what they suspected was heroin, methamphetamines, marijuana, pills, and drug paraphernalia.
The child’s mother 21-year-old Destiney Harbour, the child’s grandmother 37-year-old Christin Bradley, and Bradley’s boyfriend Dustin Smock, have since been arrested.
Harbour remains at the Tom Green County Jail on an $100,000 bond. Smock also remains at the jail on a $50,000 bond.
Bradley has since been released on a $50,000 bond on Sunday.
