PHOENIX — A Phoenix woman is in custody on allegations that she injected her 5-year-old daughter with methamphetamine and amphetamine.
Police say 30-year-old Jacqueline Trousdale is being held on suspicion of child abuse and endangering the life and health of a minor.
A family member called authorities in October, saying Trousdale was doing drugs in front of her two daughters, ages 5 and 6.
Authorities say the girls told police their mother had injected them with drugs, and state Child Protective Services took custody of the children.
Police say a urine sample from the 5-year-old girl last week came back positive for drugs in her system.
Trousdale was found in the Phoenix suburb of Tolleson and arrested.
