Mother accused of letting her 2-year-old smoke methamphetamine and marijuana Kaitlyn Ecker

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.

On Thursday, authorities made the decision to arrest her and charge her.

Multiple witnesses say Ecker kept drugs inside the home, and had heard Ecker allowed the two-year old child to smoke meth with a pipe.

In addition to that, she was also charged with "lewd and lascivious battery and transmission of harmful material to a minor" in connection to a separate case.

Heinz told police she had a history of drug use including heroin and opioid pills, reported KTVQ.

At the beginning of January, the deputies launched a child abuse investigation in Ecker's case after learning that the woman might force her 2-year-old toddler to consumed risky narcotics. While executing a search warrant on January 19, detectives found drug paraphernalia.

She had been working with infants at the time of her arrest and had been employed full time at the facility for three years.

Reports stated the police officials first searched Ecker's Crawfordville home January 19 and found several pipes that had marijuana and meth residue, grinders, a scale and a bag of weed in a basket that also held children's toys. The two glass pipes tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the cops.

"The toxicology results concluded that the 2-year old tested positive for both methamphetamine and amphetamine and the findings were "chronic" rather than 'acute, '" WCSO wrote.

Ecker denied ownership of the glass pipes located in her bedroom, but admitted to smoking methamphetamine approximately four months before.

Kaitlyn Ecker denied smoking or ingesting drugs in front of the child. According to her Facebook page, she works at a Walmart.
