Abilene man arrested after 4 different drugs found in 2-year-old's system

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - An Abilene man is behind bars after a 2-year-old tested positive for cocaine, morphine, heroin, and marijuana. 

Kevin Harris, 30, is being held in the Taylor County Jail on a $10,000 bond for Endangering a Child. He was arrested Thursday. 

Court documents state police began investigating Harris and another individual in June of 2017 when CPS received an anonymous tip that "Harris and [the other individual] smoke crack every day all day with the child in the house" and "they snort heroin and smoke weed."

During a subsequent investigation, hair follicle tests conducted on the child, Harris, and the other individual showed the child tested positive for cocaine, morphine, heroin, and marijuana, Harris tested positive for cocaine, morphine, and heroin, and the other individual tested positive for cocaine.

Both Harris and the other individual told police they did the drugs at parties in the weeks prior to the tests, and when asked how the child got drugs in her system, the documents state Harris said "that he probably had residue on his hands from when he ingested." 

The other individual involved in this investigation has not been arrested, so her identity is being withheld pending the filing of formal charges.
