Charges dropped in case of narcotics use near a baby 26 Sep 11

No charges will be filed in an incident in Savage involving potential narcotics use in the presence of a baby.

At the scene of reported criminal activity earlier this month, Savage police found four suspects, a 5-month-old baby, and tinfoil that they classified as drug paraphernalia.

A 23-year-old Jordan man, a 21-year-old Rosemount man, and a 23-year-old Savage woman were arrested for possession of a controlled substance. A 21-year-old Jordan woman in charge of babysitting the child was also arrested for possession as well as child endangerment.

The suspects were taken to the Scott County Jail. However, lab analysis of the tinfoil failed to identify any trace of narcotics. All charges associated with the case have been dropped.
