PLANO, Texas - A Plano couple is facing charges after two of their children tested positive for methamphetamine.
Plano Police Department spokesman Officer David Tilley said 33-year-old Andrew Edebor and 37-year-old Linda Edebor were taken into custody on April 4, each for two counts of endangering a child.
Child Protective Services had been investigating the family. Four children – ages 4, 8, 10 and 13 – were removed from the home in late February, and drug tests were conducted on their hair.
Tests on the 4-year-old and 13-year-old came back positive for meth. The 4-year-old had also tested positive for meth last year, according to police documents.
CPS documents reveal Andrew stated he tested computer software for a living and had already undergone required counseling and drug testing. But when confronted with his children's positive test results, he denied a CPS request for him to have an oral drug swab.
"This is a very rare incident that takes place," said Tilley. "And you hope this is a rare incident that takes place across America because it's a very sad situation."
Tilley said the investigation is still active. Police are still trying to determine how and when the children were exposed to the drugs.
The Edebors have already been released on bond. Their children remain in foster care.
