Etowah County authorities say a pregnant Attalla woman has tested positive for multiple narcotics after she was arrested for drug possession.
Merry was initially booked in on a warrant for drug possession and told workers at the Etowah County Detention Center that she was pregnant.
Entrekin said Merry tested positive for opiates, amphetamine and methamphetamine. Investigators said Merry admitted to using heroin, opiates, Dilaudid and methamphetamine. She told authorities that she has only used methamphetamine since she found out she was pregnant.
Merry is being detained in the Etowah County Detention Center with a $10,000 cash bond for the chemical endangerment warrant. As a condition of the bond she will be supervised by Etowah County Community Corrections and must successfully complete a treatment program.
