Pawtucket Mom, Dad Face Charges For Unresponsive Child

A mother is facing endangerment charges after her child reportedly tested positive for narcotics in Pawtucket.

Twenty-one-year-old Emarys Cruz and her boyfriend, 28-year-old Jeifry Dejesus, were picked up on Tuesday, one day after emergency crews were called to an apartment on Prospect Street.

A two-year-old child who was initially found unresponsive was taken to Hasbro Children's Hospital and is expected to survive.

Tests were positive for exposure to fentanyl, cocaine and xylazine.

No word on the arraignment session yet.
