A Cody woman was arrested last week on charges of endangering a child by using methamphetamines and storing them in her apartment, where she lived with her 2 year old child.
According to court documents, Cody Police officers arrested Sara Sanchez at her apartment on Pioneer Avenue after a probation and parole search of her bedroom turned up a shoebox with methamphetamine in it, along with her ID card. She admitted to officers that she had used meth the day before, and was arrested on charges that she ingested the meth while her child was in her care.
Officers charged Sanchez with an additional count of felony possession of meth, because the amount of the drug that was in her bedroom was 3.35 grams.
If convicted of child endangerment, Sanchez faces a prison sentence of up to 5 years and a $5,000 fine; if convicted on the felony methamphetamine possession charges, she faces a prison sentence of up to 7 years, as well as $15,000 in fines.
