WALHALLA, S.C. - A Westminster woman is charged with child neglect.
Authorities tell local media outlets that 36-year-old Bridgette Delanea McCall was booked into the Oconee County jail at around 6 p.m. Wednesday on a child neglect charge.
Warrants show McCall is accused of exposing her 1-year-old child to methamphetamine. Authorities say the child tested positive in a drug panel screening.
The investigation began July 9 when a sheriff's deputy spoke with a South Carolina Department of Social Services employee. Deputies say the child was removed from McCall's care and placed with family members.
McCall is in jail on $10,000 bond. It wasn't known if she had an attorney.
