ASHEVILLE – Buncombe County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Leicester man Wednesday after they say a toddler consumed meth while the 2-year-old was in his custody.

Ramiro Lopez-Gamen, 35, of Green Acres Drive, was charged with one felony count of negligent child abuse while causing serious bodily injury, according to arrest warrants.

On Tuesday, the defendant allegedly “allowed methamphetamine into his home and without due care allowed a 2-year-old victim to ingest methamphetamine causing the child to be hospitalized,” warrants state.

Bond was set at $50,000 secured.
