Comments Off on Sarah Hamrick, 28, and Anthony Freeman, 31, of Great Falls, charged after 8-month-old infant tests positive for Methamphetamine and drugs

Two Great Falls residents were arrested this week after a hair sample from their 8-month-old infant tested positive for methamphetamine and THC.

Anthony Freeman, 31, and Sarah Hamrick, 28, each face felony child welfare endangerment charges as a result of an investigation conducted by the Russell Country Drug Task Force.

According to arrest documents, Freeman told law enforcement that he and Hamrick smoked a “good amount” of meth, including in their residence on some occasions when children were present.

They reportedly told officers they used meth in a back bedroom away from their children, and said their baby-sitter must have exposed the child.

According to documents, the couple knew the baby-sitter was a methamphetamine addict and had at times given her the drug as payment.

Hair samples from three other school-age children in the home tested negative for meth, documents say.

Both Freeman and Hamrick were expected to make their initial appearance in Cascade County District Court on Wednesday.

Prosecutors have asked that they each be held on a $5,000 bond.
