NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man and woman have been charged with aggravated child neglect after allegedly possessing drugs in a home with a 14-month-old infant present.
According to an arrest warrant, Metro police detectives executed a search warrant on Wednesday at a home on Winn Avenue.
Inside, officers found suboxone strips, a marijuana grinder, rolling papers on a tray with marijuana residue, silver digital scales, containers with THC wax, two glass pipes with marijuana residue, and more than 100 prescription pills.
According to the arrest warrant, possession of those items is consistent with drug sales.
There were reportedly two juveniles in the home when the search warrant was executed, a 13-year-old boy and a 14-month-old girl.
Following the search of the home, 37-year-old Jeremy Tidwell and 36-year-old Amanda Stransberry were both charged with child endangerment, aggravated child endangerment, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
Tidwell, who reportedly told officers he was a convicted felon, was charged with being a felon in possession of a handgun, after officers found a .40-caliber pistol during the search.
It was not immediately clear what the relationship was between Tidwell, Stransberry, and the two children.
Tidwell and Stransberry are due in court on Friday, Nov. 4.
