A 2-year-old was found roaming unattended at a self-storage facility in Pinehurst, Texas, last week while her mother and an unidentified male slept in a unit. Police were called to the facility in the 3500 block of West Park around 1:45 p.m. on March 1 in reference to “suspicious circumstances,” according to a source.

The woman, later identified as 22-year-old Meagan Danielle Lonion, was awakened and found to be intoxicated on an unknown substance. She was arrested for public intoxication and transported to the Orange County Jail. Once there, police discovered she was in possession of a white crystal-like substance believed to be crystal methamphetamine, the source reported.

Lonion was also charged with possession of a controlled substance, a state jail felony. If convicted, she faces six months to two years in jail and a $10,000 fine. Lonion posted a $5,000 bond and was released from jail on March 3.

The man was so intoxicated that he was transported by ambulance to a local hospital, the source reported.

The child was released to a family member through Texas Child Protective Services.
