Limestone Co. children test positive for drugs

ARDMORE, Ala. (AP) - The parents of three Limestone County children who tested positive for methamphetamine have been charged with child endangerment.

Limestone County Sheriff's Lt. Lance Royals said 22-year-old Bridgette Nichole Garrison of Elkmont, 25-year-old Jonathan Richard Gibson and 31-year-old Tiffany Rachel Gibson, both of Ardmore, were previously arrested on multiple drug charges.

Royals said the child endangerment charges stemmed from the exposure to drugs of the Gibson's' baby girl and 3-year-old son and Garrison's 22-month-old son.

He said the charges come after an Oct. 22 drug bust in Ardmore.

The parents remained in jail on bonds totaling $500,000.

A message left with Garrison's lawyer, Lisa Greene, was not immediately returned Thursday afternoon.

It was not clear if the Gibsons had a lawyer.
