(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - A couple are in jail after methamphetamine was allegedly found in a child’s car seat.

The child’s parents are 19-year-old Baylee Johnston, 19, of Brookville and Kristofer Carey, 29, Lawrenceburg. The grandmother said she had picked up the two and their child about an hour earlier and could tell the two adults were high.

They are charged with Possession of Methamphetamine (level 6 felony) and Neglect of a Dependent (level 6 felony). Carey faces an additional charge of Possession of Paraphernalia (class C misdemeanor).

A jury trial for the two has been scheduled for May 13, 2019.
