TOOELE, Utah -- Utah police arrested three relatives after a 3-year-old tested positive at the hospital for methamphetamine, according to KSTU. The child's mother, 30-year-old Lucinda Black, along with 23-year-old Danie Black and 27-year-old Ashley Black, were all booked into the Tooele County Detention center after allegedly exposing the toddler to the drug.

Officers were contacted Dec. 30 by a Mountain West Medical Center ER employee in Tooele reporting that a child had just arrived with meth in her system, according to a probable cause statement.

The child's legal guardian, her grandmother, told police that the girl had begun to act strangely. When the grandmother asked her daughter and son, the girl's aunt and uncle, what was wrong, they stated that the child started acting "weird," after she drank from a water bottle with soda in it.
