HOUSTON COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Houston County Sheriff's Office arrested a couple last week in connection with allegations that their three children tested positive for meth.
One child tested positive for both meth and Amphetamines, according to the probable cause affidavit.
Christopher Smith, 26, and Micah Smith, 24, both of Crockett, were each charged with state-jail felony abandoning or endangering a child.
According to the probable cause affidavit, a Houston County Sheriff's Office deputy was dispatched to the lobby of the sheriff's office on April 30 to speak to a Child Protective Services investigator. The CPS investigator told the deputy that she was working a case against Christopher and Micah Smith and that the agency had taken custody of the couple's three children on April 23.
On April 30, the drug screen results came back for the three children. All three children tested positive for methamphetamine and one boy tested positive for both meth and amphetamines, the affidavit stated.
"[The CPS investigator] stated that the use and selling of methamphetamine were brought to the department's attention," the affidavit stated.
In addition, Christopher and Micah Smith allegedly admitted to using meth.
The CPS investigator also told the HCSO deputy that the tests indicated that two of the couple's children were exposed to meth, and they showed that one child "consumed or ingested" meth.
