A Lake Arrowhead woman was wanted on an arrest warrant after her infant granddaughter was treated for methamphetamine ingestion, officials said Friday.
The baby’s mother, 22-year-old Breanna Wood, was tracked down and arrested after her child was taken to the Mountains Community Hospital around 7:30 a.m. last Thursday, San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials said in a news release.
Detectives sent to the hospital’s emergency room determined the infant was in her mother’s care when she ingested the narcotic.
The child is less than a year old, authorities said.
After being treated, she was placed in the custody of the county’s Child and Family Services Administration.
Wood and the girl’s grandmother, 47-year-old Autumn Nelson, allegedly fled their home in Blue Jay, a community on the lake’s southwest shore, after learning that the incident was under investigation.
Wood was later found in the Rimforest area and taken into custody, deputies said.
