Bismarck toddler tests positive for meth; mother charged

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck woman faces a felony child abuse charge after authorities say her 2-year-old daughter tested positive for methamphetamine.

An arrest warrant has been issued for 29-year-old Sarah Weiss. A man who answered the telephone at a home listing for her Friday declined to take a message from The Associated Press. Court documents do not list an attorney for her.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the girl's father took her to the hospital on Oct. 20 after noticing unusual behavior. The father told investigators the girl had been with her mother.

Weiss also faces a felony charge for allegedly having a prescription drug without a prescription. She could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted on both charges.
