Coralville police arrested an area woman after her daughter reported she had allegedly given her drugs, and tried to cover up the evidence.

Victoria Michelle Eckwall, 32, Coralville, was charged April 29 with child endangerment without injury.

According to a complaint, Eckwall's 12-year-old daughter went to the Coralville police and reported her mother gave her narcotics and allowed her to use them in her presence.

The girl also told police Eckwall tried to make her shave her head in an attempt to prevent officials from testing her hair follicles for drug use.

Child endangerment without injury is an aggravated misdemeanor, punishable by up to two years in prison and a maximum fine of $6,250.
