A Foothills woman was jailed Wednesday on suspicion of child abuse and other felonies after methamphetamine was found in the system of her 2-year-old son, the Yuma County Sheriff's Office said.
Trina Rae Carroll, 34, faces charges of felony endangerment, child abuse and involving a minor in a drug abuse, the sheriff's office said in a news release.
The toddler was treated at Yuma Regional Medical Center and is in the temporary custody of his maternal grandmother, Sheriff's Capt. Eben Bratcher said.
Carroll had brought the toddler to the hospital after he began crying uncontrollably and complaining of stomach pain, the release said.
After finding methamphetamine in the child's system, the hospital contacted Yuma police, who referred the case to the sheriff's office on Tuesday, since the incident is believed to have occurred in Carroll's home in the 12600 block of East 46th Drive.
The sheriff's office began an investigation that led to Carroll's arrest Tuesday.
