NEWTON (KWWL) -

An Iowa woman was arrested and charged after a baby tested 5 times higher for methamphetamine than she did, according to court records.

Vanessa Trotter, 23, and Cody Sanders, 25, face charges after a 1-year-old in Trotter's care tested positive for methamphetamine.

According to KCCI, Trotter's apartment manager called the Iowa Department of Human Services months ago, and Newton Police issued a warrant for her arrest in March.

This week, Trotter was pulled over on Highway 14, and police say they found a makeshift pipe.

Both Trotter and her boyfriend were charged with child endangerment and possession of drug paraphernalia.
