NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A Nashville man and woman accused of having loose crack cocaine and heroin on a plate near a three-year-old child last month have been jailed on child neglect and felony drug offense charges.
According to arrest records for 43-year-old Donna Carter and 24-year-old Jaquise Carter, police issued a search warrant of their Madison Boulevard apartment and found crack cocaine pre-cut for sales. Officers say they recovered the razor blade used to cut the drugs and coffee filters used to dry out the crack after cooking.
Also found in the home were two Adderall pills, 8.6 grams of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia which included a marijuana smoking bong gas mask. Police say during the search, Jaquise Carter's toddler "had access" to loose crack cocaine and heroin found in the living room on a plate.
Jaquise Carter was charged with child neglect, while Donna Carter faces several charges which include being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance, and felony drug offense.
