Troy Woman Charged After Drugs Found in Infant’s Bed
A Troy woman is in the Bell County Jail after police say she left a syringe full of methamphetamine in her infant child's bed.
40-year-old Tisha Holmberg was arrested Tuesday and charged with abandoning/endangering a child criminal negligence, a state jail felony.
A witness said Holmberg and her husband returned to their home at 305 Curtis St. after grocery shopping, and the man went to look for something belonging to the baby. While searching, he found the syringe in the infant's bed. This led to a domestic dispute which prompted someone to call police.
The responding officer reportedly tried to speak with Holmberg, who he said was incoherent and having difficulty keeping her balance. The officer also alleges that Holmberg pulled a spoon and a syringe similar to that found in the child's room from her pocket and attempted to throw them away.
According to a police report, the husband then requested that police search Holmberg's vehicle, in which they found a clear plastic bag containing a substance that reportedly tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as a state identification card belonging to Holmberg.
Holmberg was booked into the Bell County Jail Tuesday at 6:44 AM. Her bond was set at $15,000.
A family member said the child was safe and in good condition.
