NEBO, N.C. — Cops in North Carolina arrested a couple after four children tested positive for meth.
Kimberly Dawn Lowery, 29, and Nathan Todd Vallini, 27, are each charged with four counts of misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, WGHP reported.
McDowell County deputies said the four children — ranging in ages from 4 to 12 — were living with the suspects when a relative filed a complaint about possible drug use in the house.
As part of an investigation which began last month, the children were tested for the presence of methamphetamine in their systems — and all four tests came back positive.
Lowery and Vallini are both scheduled to appear in court in McDowell County on April 25.
