PHOENIX — A Phoenix woman is in custody accused of injecting her
5-year-old daughter with methamphetamine and amphetamine.
Police said 30-year-old Jacqueline Trousdale is being held on suspicion of child
abuse and endangering the life and health of a minor.
A family member called authorities last October, claiming Trousdale was doing
drugs in front of her two daughters, ages 5 and 6.
The girls told police their mother allegedly injected them with drugs and state
Child Protective Services took custody of the children.
Police said a urine sample from the 5-year-old girl came back last week positive
for drugs in her system.
Trousdale was located in the Phoenix suburb of Tolleson and arrested.
She was arraigned on the charges Wednesday in a Tolleson court and doesn’t have
an attorney for her case.
