North East resident Randi Steele, 34 was charged with endangering the welfare of a child on March 30, after calling 911 thinking she may have harmed her 3-month-old son.
State police were called to her residence on March 29 and during the interview she admitted to taking LSD orally in paper form, according to the affidavit of probable cause filed with the police criminal complaint.
Steele said she was in contact with the victim following the drug use to feed him.
The reporting officer, trooper Kirk Forsythe, noted in the affidavit, that Steele was incoherent during the interview and did not know what time of day it was when asked.
“I observed the victim lying in a baby seat in the middle of the living room floor,” Forsythe wrote in the affidavit. “The child appeared to be ok and was actively observed and cared for by the North East Fire Department/EMS personnel.
“I asked her about the guy passed out in the chair next to her and she did not respond to me and could not name him.”
The man at her residence was confirmed to be Evan Bowman, the father of the victim, and was unable to give any details about what had happened.
A court date has been set.
