NELA mom accused of sending child to daycare with meth & Xanax
OUACHITA PARISH, La. (KNOE) - Louisiana State Police say they have arrested a woman accused of accidentally sending her child to daycare with various drugs in the child’s lunch bag.
According to an arrest report, it happened on April 5, 2022, in Ouachita Parish. Authorities say a state trooper received a call from a daycare regarding a child dropped off by Jennifer Wise, 35.
The report states that a search of the bag revealed about one gram of meth, five and a half clonazepam pills, and half a bar of Xanax. Wise was located at her home in the 100 block of Pankey Road. She reportedly told police that she had actually misplaced those drugs and she had been looking for them.
State police say she also told investigators she had an “eight ball” of meth in her room. Investigators say they searched the room and found about nine grams of meth, scales and baggies they say are commonly used in the distribution of drugs.
Police say she admitted to buying all of the drugs for $75 the day prior.
She was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center on six different drug charges, four of which are felonies, including possession with intent to distribute.
