DALLAS (AP) – Dallas police have arrested a 4-year-old boy’s parents and his uncle after the child took a bag of alleged crack cocaine to preschool.
Jail records show 26-year-olds Joshua and Christy Ruiz, plus 21-year-old Moses Ruiz, remained in custody Friday. The parents have been charged with child endangerment. Police say Joshua Ruiz and Moses Ruiz are accused of distribution of a controlled substance.
The arrests came after officers were notified by the charter school that the boy was seen playing with the bag Wednesday.
Bond for Christy Ruiz has been set at $100,000. Her husband is jailed on $600,000 bond. Bond has been set at $100,000 for Moses Ruiz. Online records did not list attorneys for them.
The 4-year-old boy and his 5-year-old sibling have been placed with Child Protective Services.
