A woman in Florida has been arrested after being accused of letting her two-year-old smoke methamphetamine and roll joints. The woman, 20-year-old Kaitlyn Ecker, was arrested this past Thursday (April 12). She is now facing charges of Child abuse and currently remains in Wakulla County Jail. Reports by Yahoo! and the Miami Herald were used to create this article.

In January, a child abuse investigation was launched against Kaitlyn Ecker. Detectives with the Wakulla County Sheriff's office were looking into allegations that the mother involved the two-year-old in pot and meth use at her home. A few witnesses came forward and told detectives that the child had smoked pot with Kaitlyn Ecker, who allegedly joked that the child knew how to roll joints.

Paraphernalia discovered

Detectives were told that the child was allowed to smoke meth with a pipe. Kaitlyn Ecker apparently did the drug herself, too. On January 19, detectives acted on a search warrant. This led to the discovery of drug paraphernalia.

During the search, detectives found meth residue inside two glass pipes. Also found was a plastic pill bottle that was made into a makeshift smoking device and two grinders. A digital scale and a small plastic bag were found as well.

The child had been exposed to the drug multiple times

Shortly after that, Kaitlyn Ecker was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. Not only that, but authorities executed a search warrant for a hair sample and blood sample from the woman, as well as the child. The results from the toxicology report were returned on March 15, and they revealed the two-year-old tested positive for meth and amphetamine.

Sadly, the results indicated the two-year-old had been exposed to the drug on numerous occasions.

Kaitlyn Ecker denied smoking or ingesting drugs in front of the child. She did admit that she smoked marijuana the night before and that she did meth four months earlier. She denied knowing that the two-year-old had been exposed to drugs.

The Wakulla Sheriff's office didn't go into detail about the relationship between the two-year-old and Kaitlyn Ecker. However, The Miami Herald reported that the two-year-old is her daughter.

On Thursday, authorities made the decision to arrest her and charge her. As of now, it's not clear if Kaitlyn Ecker has an attorney or if she still has custody of the two-year-old. It's also not clear if she has an attorney representing her or when she is expected back in court.
