Two Wichita Co. Mothers Jailed After Allegedly Exposing Children to Meth

 

Two Wichita County mothers are jailed after allegedly exposing their children to meth.
 
21-year-old Shantell Alexander of Electra had a bond of $25,000 set on the charge of child endangerment with criminal negligence. Police got a report she was in the hospital giving birth and admitted using meth for 6 to 7 months during her pregnancy.
 
A Child Protective Services report also alleged her 2-year-old boy got hold of a cotton swab that had been used to clean out a glass drug pipe and put it in his mouth. Investigators say Alexander complained he was up all that night crying.
 
Tests conducted on the two children showed the newborn was negative for narcotics, but the 2-year-old tested positive for meth. Police say Alexander told them she did not use narcotics around  her two year old and when she used drugs, she let him stay with her mother, who also used meth.
 
In the second case a 29 year old Burkburnett woman is charged with exposing her 1-year-old daughter to meth. Police say they were contacted by a CPS investigator about the baby testing positive for meth.
 
Police say when they interviewed the suspect, Stacey May McCarthy, she said she and a friend had  used meth numerous times  in the campground where they lived with their children present.
But she said she didn't think the children could be exposed because she snorted the drugs instead of smoking them.
