LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Lufkin Police officers on Tuesday arrested a 36-year-old local woman convicted of child endangerment after her probation officer filed a violation report. In November 2009, Loreeka Dodd was arrested because her three children tested positive for drugs.

Dodd is still being held in the Angelina County Jail. Although bonds have been set for the numerous traffic-related offenses, no bond has been set for her revocation of probation arrest.

"Her officer filed a violation report with the Court, and a motion to adjudicate guilt was issued," Dustin Fore, the supervisor for casework services for Angelina County's Adult Probation Department, said. "The violations include testing positive for marijuana, failing to report to her officer, failing to submit to a drug test, failing to pay, residing with her husband and failing to attend support group meetings."

The violation report was filed after LPD officers conducted a search of Dodd's home. Evidence was found that her husband was still living with her. In addition, officers found K2, a synthetic marijuana, and a stolen gun at the residence, but the items could not be linked to Dodd, so they weren't listed in the violation report.

Dodd's initial arrest in this case occurred in November 2001. Child Protective Services had been investigating Dodd for months prior to that, and the drug results stemmed from a random drug test administered by CPS.

CPS took custody of Dodd's three children. It is not known at this time whether or not Dodd ever regained custody of the three children.

An Angelina County jury convicted Dodd of injury to a child and three counts of abandoning or endangering a child (criminal negligence), all felonies, in February 2011.
