A search warrant was used last week for drug enforcement officers to gain access to a Newport residence that led to the arrest of a mother and the confiscation of her 9 month old son who was placed in protective custody. Officers reported they discovered three grams of heroin in the residence and that the drug was reportedly injected while in the presence of the baby. Kari Davis, 30, was lodged in the Lincoln County Jail on charges of possession, manufacturing and delivery of heroin, child neglect and child endangerment, theft and violation of her parole on an earlier conviction. She’s being held without bail.
Later on April 4th, detectives say they tracked down another person of interest related to the case and when they located him in his car they found him in possession of ten grams of heroin. Carl Winslow was lodged in the county jail on charges of possession of heroin, manufacturing and delivery of heroin, child neglect and endangerment and theft. His bail was set at $350,000.
