A Tulsa woman was arrested Wednesday after drugs reportedly were found throughout her apartment, where a small child also lived.
Lacy Webster, 21, was taken into custody on complaints of child neglect and possession of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of a minor, jail records show.
Police were called to an apartment in the 2000 block of East Eighth Street about 4:15 p.m. to assist a Department of Human Services social worker who was attempting to contact Webster, an arrest report says.
The arresting officer saw three small plastic bags containing drug residue in a living room trash can and four additional bags in a bedroom, the report says.
A methamphetamine pipe and bong were on the floor next to baby wipes and three straws and two mirrors that held drug residue, the report alleges.
Also found were two lighters and a box of matches and a nursery care kit on a table near drug paraphernalia, the report says.
The officer wrote in the report that "the apartment was very dirty and messy."
A crystal white substance that was found in the apartment tested positive for methamphetamine, police said.
Webster is being held in the Tulsa Jail in lieu of $55,000 bail.
