Drugs Found On Child

Police in Newcastle, Pennsylvania claim they found crack cocaine and pills in a toddler's pocket during a drug raid. According to CBS News, the cops found the drugs in the toddler's jacket pocket, as the child's mother handed him to a woman outside the apartment.

The D.A. said, "The officers were very agitated at the scene because there was some information that at the time of the arrest, that those drugs were placed into the pocket of the child and then the child was being escorted out." Police recovered 49 individually wrapped bags of crack cocaine, along with a small amount of pills. The cops also found cash and marijuana in the house. The child has been turned over to Lawrence County Child Youth Services, and this is the second time drugs were found in the apartment with the child.

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
