Toddler Tests Positive For Meth; Mom Arrested

Mom: Girl Drank From Cup With Meth Inside

A Kokomo woman was arrested Wednesday after her 2-year-old daughter tested positive for methamphetamine, police said.

Heather M. Roe, 25, was preliminarily charged with neglect after police were called to a home in the 1700 block of N. Market St. to check on the welfare of the girl.

When officers began questioning Roe, they said she told them that her daughter had accidentally drank from a cup containing methamphetamine left on the counter of the home she was visiting.

The girl, who also had marks on her face, tested positive for the drug at a local hospital, police said. She was taken into state custody.

Roe also faces a charge of illegal possession of anhydrous ammonia, an ingredient used in the manufacture of meth, in connection with a 2008 arrest.
