Homeless Mom Facing Felony Meth Charges
A homeless mom is facing felony drug charges after Cheyenne Police found her high on meth in front of her kids.
Officer Kevin Malatesta says police were called to Little Philly on December 15, after someone reported that an occupied car had been sitting in the parking lot for several hours.
"When the officers approached the car they found a person named Glenda Lewis standing outside of the car with the trunk open and all of the doors of the car open," said Malatesta. "Lewis was throwing things out of the trunk and ranting about someone being planted in her car."
Malatesta says Lewis' 5-year-old daughter and 16-month-old son were in the back seat.
"Lewis was found to be under the influence of methamphetamine," said Malatesta. "She had a small amount of methamphetamine on her and she admitted to using the methamphetamine around the kids."
The 32-year-old was arrested and her kids were taken into protective custody.
Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 21 at 1:30 p.m. in Laramie County Circuit Court.
