EVERETT — A Lake Stevens couple has been charged with felony child endangerment after allegedly exposing an 11-month-old baby to meth.

The Daily Herald reports the couple allegedly smoked meth while the girl was with them in their vehicle.

The girl’s 22-year-old mother and her half-brother boyfriend were charged Thursday with one count each of child endangerment with a controlled substance.

The woman has other children and Child Protective Services is involved.

Marysville Police say they were tipped off by a 911 caller who was worried that the girl was being exposed to secondhand smoke from the drug. It was 38 degrees that night and the vehicle had no heat. Police say the girl was dressed only in a diaper and appeared to be cold and hungry.
