Man charged after 5-year-old boy's urine tests positive for cocaine
A South Salt Lake man has been charged in a drug case in which a 5-year-old boy tested positive for cocaine when a woman used the boy's urine to cheat on a drug screening.
The woman, posing as a man, told authorities that "he" knew parents who were exposing their child to heroin and cocaine, court documents state. The woman admitted "he" used the 5-year-old's urine to take a drug test, but the urine came back positive for cocaine.
Later tests on the child's urine and hair also came back positive for cocaine and opiates, court documents state. A man, 54, was charged Monday with clandestine laboratory endangerment of a child, a third-degree felony. A woman codefendant - not the caller - was charged last week. - Erin Alberty
