COLLINSVILLE, Texas -- A Collinsville infant is in protective custody and the parents are under arrest after they allegedly exposed their child to illegal narcotics.

Investigators said Kyle Maxon, 25, and Isabelle McDonald, 20,were taken into custody Sunday after a meth pipe and bag of marijuana were found hidden in a food container used by the six-month-old baby.

Using a body camera, Collinsville police Officer Jon Cheshire documented his search of the child's diaper bag after Maxon and McDonald admitted to concealing drugs in their child's food.

"When law enforcement officers start asking questions about a specific item, it's common for a suspect to crack and go ahead and give up," Cheshire said.

He found a methamphetamine pipe in a baby formula container, and a bag of marijuana in the child's cereal.

According to police, McDonald told investigators she thought she could get away with hiding the drugs in these specific spots.

Cheshire said he called Child Protective Services after finding the drugs.

"Parents are looking at a lot of obstacles to get these kids back," Cheshire said. "They have to clean up their act; they have to face these felony charges."

Maxon was charged with possession of meth, THC and marijuana. McDonald was charged with abandoning or endangering a child and tampering with evidence.
