POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Polk County Sheriff's Office arrested a 34-year-old woman Wednesday in connection to allegations that she used meth and synthetic marijuana with a 1-year-old baby living in the same home with her.
Tonya Lynn Wilson, of Livingston, is still being held in the Polk County Jail on two felony charges – endangering a child and possession of a controlled substance less than 1 gram. Collectively, her bail amount has been set $20,000.
According to the arrest affidavit, PCSO deputies received a tip that narcotics were being sold at a home on Washington Avenue. When they got to the scene and spoke to Wilson, she allegedly denied selling drugs but admitted that there were drugs in the room.
After Wilson gave the PCSO deputies to search the home, they found syringes and less than a gram of methamphetamine within arm's reach of Wilson, the affidavit stated. At the time, Wilson was holding a 1-year-old baby in her arms.
According to the affidavit, Wilson told the deputies that she had used meth and synthetic marijuana before they came to check out the tip that drugs were being sold at that location.
