The Etowah Count Sheriff's Office says they have arrested two women on chemical endangerment charges in separate incidents.
According to Investigator Haydyn Hedspeth, 24-year-old Amy Renea Hall faces one charge of chemical endangerment of exposing a child to an environment in which controlled substances are ingested, produced or distributed. The Sheriff's office says Hall admitted to use of Xanax and OxyContin during her pregnancy.
Dylan Leann Entrekin, 21, is facing her own charge of chemical endangerment of exposing a child to an environment in which controlled substances are ingested, produced or distributed, according to Investigator Bobby Bryant. Entrekin allegedly admitted to using methamphetamine on a daily basis.
"It is simply unacceptable for an adult to endanger an innocent child's life," states Sheriff Entrekin. "How do we reverse this trend, I'm not sure. But as long as women continue to put their child's welfare in jeopardy we will continue to arrest them and offer them help."
Both women are being held in the Etowah County Jail. The jail's website says both are being held without bond.
