LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Polk County Sheriff's Office arrested a 56-year-old man on child endangerment charges Tuesday after the 1-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy living at his residence tested positive for "high doses" of methamphetamine.

Addison Wesley Harwood, 56, is still being held in the Polk County Jail on two second-degree felony charges of child endangerment. No bail has been set at this time.

Harwood's arrest stems from an incident in which PCSO deputies went to a house in the 500 block of N. Roman Drive just outside of Livingston on Oct. 29 to serve a manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone warrant on Ashli Dawn Johnson, 27, according to the arrest affidavit.

Once they were on the scene, Johnson was taken into custody, and the deputies got consent to search the residence from the three adults who were living there.

During the search, the deputies allegedly found meth, marijuana, synthetic marijuana and items used to ingest those illegal substances. They also found that a 1-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy were living at the residence.

The affidavit stated that "Both children tested extremely high for methamphetamine which put them in a class associated with constant users of the drug." Harwood placed the two children in an environment in which the kids were allowed to "come in contact with and ingest high doses of methamphetamine."

In addition, the affidavit pointed out that the drug is known to cause both medical and mental problems that may not show up for years.

Johnson is also still being held in the Polk County Jail on felony charges of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance less than or equal to 1 gram in a drug-free zone, possession of a controlled substance, and two child endangerment charges. Collectively, her bail has been set at $35,000.
