WEST HAMLIN, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) — West Hamlin Police Department officials said they arrested a woman after finding drug paraphernalia and methamphetamine residue a few feet away from where a 7-month-old baby sleeps.
Hailey Eplin, 23, is facing child neglect and drug possession charges, Sgt. J.J. Napier said.
Police served a search warrant Thursday morning at Emerald Garden Apartments in West Hamlin. The baby was not at the home at the time of the search, Napier said.
