I really don't know what to say about this and it really isn't gun related except for the comment comparing it to a gun. Just thought I would see if anyone else wants to comment on the entore situation.:angry:
The mother and grandmother of a 4-year-old Darlington girl were arrested Tuesday after the child ate cocaine from a bag she found in the suspects’ home, Darlington County Sheriff’s Capt. Andy Locklair said.
Jessica McKnight, 21, and Dorothy McKnight Green, 51, both of 123 Robin Lane in Darlington, are each charged with one count of unlawful conduct toward a child, Darlington County Detention Center booking reports show.
The S.C. Department of Social Services received an anonymous tip that the girl found a baggy of cocaine in the home and started eating from it, Locklair said.
Authorities performed a hair follicle test on the child and found cocaine in her body.
Darlington County sheriff’s deputies began investigating the incident in February after DSS case workers contacted them, Locklair said.
The 4-year-old and a 1-year-old child who was also living in the home were placed in emergency protective custody. The younger child didn’t test positive for cocaine, Locklair said.
The 4-year-old wasn’t injured, Locklair said.
The two women were arrested Tuesday after deputies completed the investigation, he said.
“This is no different than having a loaded gun laying out and a child getting hold of it,” Locklair said.
