ORANGEBURG (AP) — Two people have been arrested at a meth house where Orangeburg County authorities say a 2-year-old girl was left by her mother.
The Times & Democrat of Orangeburg reports Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said officers answering a complaint on Thursday found methamphetamines in the house.
Ravenell said 41-year-old Christy M. Kinsey is charged with possession of methamphetamine. He also said 29-year-old Fran Nicole Roberts was arrested on an outstanding family court bench warrant.
Kinsey and Roberts are being held under $20,000 bond apiece. It’s not known if they have attorneys.
The sheriff said the girl’s mother left her in the custody of another resident of the house, saying she would return for the child in four or five hours, but she never came back. Deputies are searching for her.
