Mother Arrested After 2-Year-Old Tests Positive For Meth

Mother Arrested After 2-Year-Old Tests Positive For Meth

The investigation into Ecker started in January when the Wakulla County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office learned the child may have been involved with using both drugs.

Detectives were told that the child was allowed to smoke meth with a pipe.

Kaitlyn Ecker is charged with child abuse, as well as lewd and lascivious battery and transmission of harmful material to a minor from an unrelated investigation. Reports by Yahoo! and the Miami Herald were used to create this article. They said Ecker and her friends "joked" about the child's ability to "roll joints" for her. Kaitlyn Ecker apparently did the drug herself, too.

On January 19, 2018, detectives executed a search warrant at Ecker's residence, located on Card Lane in Crawfordville. This led to the discovery of drug paraphernalia. Inside, pipes with both cannabis and meth residue were found, along with grinders, a scale and a small bag of weed. Authorities found a glass pipe with what appeared to be meth residue and a plastic tube full of white crystals, which tested positive for meth. In March, the toxicology results concluded that the toddler tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine.

With the assistance of Wakulla County Emergency Medical Service personnel, detectives collected a blood sample and hair sample from Ecker and the two-year old child.

Sadly, the results indicated the two-year-old had been exposed to the drug on numerous occasions. Wakulla County Sheriff's Office Sheriff Jared Miller told Oxygen.com on Friday afternoon that the mother is still in jail awaiting her first appearance. Ecker admitted to smoking marijuana the night before being interrogated and smoking meth four months earlier. She denied ever smoking or ingesting drugs in the presence of the child and denied any knowledge of the child being exposed to drugs. Additionally, Ecker denied owning the pipes.
