A Hilton Head mother of 3 was charged after authorities say
her son showed up at a church preschool with needles containing heroin, Beaufort County Deputies say.
Jenna Marie George, age 33, of was arrested on Monday and
was still in jail on Thursday night, according to information WBTW-TV obtained
from the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
George was charged with child neglect after a worker at
Christ Lutheran Preschool was brought 2 needles with a liquid that later tested
positive for heroin, the Island Packet reported.
The needles were in the child's backpack, which George had
packed, her husband said in a sheriff's report that the newspaper obtained.
WTOC-TV reported that the 4-year-old boy took the needles to
his teacher during naptime after he found them in the bag.
Deputies searched the parent's house at Port Royal
Plantation. They said several more needles were found, including one under the
other child's bed.
The children, a 6 year old, 4 year old and 8 month old are
now living with their grandmother.
