Authorities have accused a local woman of keeping meth and marijuana in areas within her 6-year-old son’s reach.

Caryn Freeman, 27, was charged Sunday with possession of a controlled substance, child endangerment, knowingly keeping or permitting the possession of a controlled substance in a structure or vehicle, and gathering for use of drugs.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, officers responded in a welfare check on a 6-year-old male. Officers had been advised that Freeman was using drugs in the residence where the child lived.

When officers made contact with Freeman and three other adult occupants, they allegedly spotted hypodermic syringes and prescription pills lying on the floor, the complaint said. They also reportedly found marijuana and methamphetamine residue on low tables within reach of the child.

Officers conducted a search and allegedly located more methamphetamine, prescription pills, and marijuana in the apartment, as well as finding methamphetamine and paraphernalia in Freeman’s vehicle, the complaint said.

Possession of a controlled substance is a serious misdemeanor. Child endangerment is an aggravated misdemeanor. Knowingly keeping or permitting the possession of a controlled substance in a structure or vehicle is an aggravated misdemeanor. Gathering for use of drugs is a Class-D felony.
