In two separate and unrelated cases, two Coosa County women were arrested on the same charge one day apart.
In one case, Sheriff Michael Howell reported that his office was notified about a child who had tested positive for THC, a primary cannabinoid molecule and the main active ingredient in marijuana.
Howell said they investigated the case and determined that the child did in fact test positive for THC. Additionally, because of the amount of THC in the child’s system, he said there was possible risk of damaging his kidneys.
The investigation further determined that the individual responsible for the child testing positive was 19-year-old Annalisa Allison of Coosa County, near Clanton.
A warrant was signed, and Allison was arrested on July 27 on the charge of chemical endangerment of a child. Her bond was set at $10,000, and she was released on bond on July 31 to await trial.
In a separate case, the day prior to that a Richville woman was also arrested on the same charge.
In that case, Howell reported that the Sheriff’s Office conducted an investigation into a child having tested positive for methamphetamine.
That investigation reportedly determined that 29-year-old Kaitlyn Streets of Richville was responsible for the child’s exposure and testing positive for meth.
On July 26 Streets was arrested on three counts of chemical endangerment of a child. Her total bond was set at $30,000, and as of press time she remained in custody at the Coosa County Jail awaiting trial.
Howell said that both investigations for these two cases were conducted by Sheriff’s Office investigators and the Coosa County Department of Human Resources.
