Authorities arrested a mother whose 4-year-old daughter wouldn’t wake up after her school nap time after the girl and her 2-year-old brother tested positive for cocaine.

Annquita Wright, 31, is charged with two counts of criminal abuse after police say two of her three children tested positive for cocaine.

Wright’s 4-year-old daughter wasn’t feeling well Thursday at Clark County Head Start in Winchester, KY. Staff say the child was lethargic, and when they put her down for a nap, they couldn’t wake her back up.

The girl was taken to the hospital, where police say she tested positive for cocaine. The 4-year-old told investigators she’d seen something on the floor of her home that morning, picked it up and ate it.

Wright’s 2-year-old son also tested positive for cocaine.

Police arrested Wright, whom they say admitted she would let a friend sell cocaine and crack at her home, right in front of her three kids. The kids would even sit at the table with the drug dealer.

Wright is also a fugitive from another state.
