San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies arrested a woman in an Adelanto trailer park after she allegedly ate methamphetamine while her 4-year-old child sat on her lap.
Joanne Marie Lanfor, 35, and Christopher Breed, 25 were arrested for possession of meth and willful cruelty to a child. The child was placed in protective custody.
An earlier version of this story reported that the child was a girl based on information provided by the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department. Trailer Park Manager June Benevides and several park residents identified the child as Lanfor's son.
