MESA, AZ — A Mesa mother and grandmother have been charged with child abuse after drugs were found in the blood samples of two young children who lived in their home.
Court records show that 58-year-old Andrea McDevitt, and her daughter, 31-year-old Erika McDevitt, were charged on Wednesday with two counts of child abuse.
Investigators say Erika was selling heroin and meth out of the bathroom of her home near Country Club and University drives. Andrea was also found to have heroin and meth in her purse when investigators searched the house.
Police say the bathroom had child proof door locks on it.
However, the children, ages two and three-years-old, both showed traces of meth and morphine in their systems, according to court records.
Both Ericka and Andrea reportedly denied giving the children any drugs. However, police say certain drugs can be transferred through food or touch.
They are scheduled to make their first court appearances on November 13.
