SALINE COUNTY — Law enforcement authorities are investigating two suspects on drug and child endangerment allegations.
Just before 1 a.m. Wednesday, police received a call from 31-year-old Meaghan Moreno, according to Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester. She told police that someone was hurt inside her apartment in the 700 block of Fairdale Street in Salina.
When officers arrived, Moreno and her husband, 31-year-old Robert Moreno, did not let officers enter the apartment. When police did finally gain access, they found Meaghan, Robert and a four-year-old girl hiding.
Meaghan appeared to be under the influence of methamphetamine, according to Forrester. A search of the residence uncovered 8-grams of meth and drug paraphernalia.
Police placed the child into protective custody and arrested the parents.
They were booked on requested charges for possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment.
