LEESVILLE - Vernon Parish authorities say a 22-year-old Rosepine mother is facing charges after her 10-month-old child tested positive for meth at a hospital.

The Town Talk reports detectives were contacted on Jan. 17 by Beauregard Memorial Hospital emergency room personnel about the child.

Detectives interviewed the child's mother, Heather Jenkins, who said she had been to a house where meth was used and that the child may have been exposed while there.

Jenkins was arrested and booked with possession of meth and cruelty to a juvenile. Her bond was set at $35,000.
