Texas Department of Public Safety troopers arrested a 34-year-old Lufkin woman on a Diboll Police Department warrant Friday for abandoning or endangering a child. Amanda Mae Harris allegedly used methamphetamine while her three children were present.

Harris is still being held in the Angelina County jail on state-jail felony charges of abandoning or endangering a child and possession of a controlled substance less than one gram. No bail has been set at this time.

According to the arrest affidavit, a Diboll PD detective and a representative from the Department of Family Protective Services spoke with Harris on May 16 in reference to an incident that occurred 100 Hendricks Street.

Harris allegedly admitted to using meth in the presence of her three children. After the Department of Family Protective Services requested that a drug test be done on Harris and her children, one of her kids tested positive for meth, the affidavit stated. The child that tested positive is under the age of 15.
