ND toddler tests positive for meth; mother charged

BISMARCK — 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 (http://bit.ly/1cvZWMS) 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.
