Authorities have identified the woman who gave birth to a child in April that tested positive for cocaine and opiates.
Mobile Police say they’ve issued an arrest warrant for 22-year-old Marlo Dionne Merity on the charge of Chemical Endangerment of a Child. Investigators believe Merity might be in the Grand Bay area.
Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Merity is asked to call Mobile Police at (251) 208-7211, CrimeStoppers at (251) 208-7000 or text Mobile Police Intel at CRIMES (274637) and include the keyword “CRIME411.”
Editor’s Note: There have been previous reports in recent months of babies being born and testing positive for cocaine. This is a separate and new case from MPD.
