Parents Arrested After Infant Was Found With Drugs in Baby's System

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Two parents find themselves behind bars after being accused of child endangerment.

The case dates back to a series of offenses that occurred in July.

Earlier this year, Child Protective Services made an effort to check on the welfare of a 4-month-old baby.

At the time, CPS reported to have found the home in unsanitary conditions and discovered drug residue and drug paraphernalia inside the residence.

A few days later, the 4-month-old infant was removed from the home.

As part of the investigation, hair specimens were collected from the baby and submitted for drug and alcohol testing.

Final results show the baby, who is now 7-months-old, tested positive for amphetamines and marijuana.

The mother, Courtney Vasquez, 22, and father, David Holman, 28, were arrested.

Based on the investigation, the infant was in the care, custody and control of Courtney Vasquez and David Holman at the time of the inhalation or gestation of the narcotics found in the infant's system.

Ector County Sheriff's office say investigation by law enforcement is complete but the case has now moved on to the Ector County District Attorney for prosecution.

The state of the 7-month-old infant is unknown.
