An Alabama mother was detained on Friday after local authorities found that she exposed her five children to cocaine. 

Cordelia Adair, 31, was charged with five counts of chemical endangerment of a child after she was arrested by the Montgomery Police Department.

Adair’s four-year-old son, seven-year-old daughter, nine-year-old daughter, 12-year-old son and 13-year-old son were said to be the victims, according to the Montgomery Adviser. 

Arrest affidavits state that the controlled substance was exposed to the children between June and September.  

‘MPD was contacted by DHR on Sept. 6 in reference to possible drug activity in the home,’ MPD Captain Regina Duckett said. 

‘Following a joint investigation with DHR, warrants were secured against Adair. She was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force on Sept. 21 and charged.’

The children’s current whereabouts are unknown as the Department of Human Resources would not release information pertaining to the investigation.    

State law lists chemical endangerment of a child as a felony but the crime lies under three different classes. 

Adair was charged with a Class C felony, applicable if a person ‘knowingly, recklessly, or intentionally causes or permits a child to be exposed to, to ingest or inhale, or to have contact’ with a controlled chemical substance. 

She was held in custody on a $15,000 bond per count but Montgomery County District Judge Jimmy Pool decided to halve that amount on Monday.
