Complaint: Minn. boy shows principal evidence of mom's meth use


A criminal complaint filed in Wright County says a 32-year-old woman from Chatham Township has been charged with storing meth paraphernalia in the presence of a child after a 12-year-old boy showed evidence of his mom's narcotics use to his school principal, WCCO-TV reported.

Sabina Marie Coolan was charged after the boy delivered a small ziptop bag to the principal that contained a white crystal substance that tested positive for methamphetamine, said the criminal complaint.

According to the complaint, the Wright County Sheriff's Office conducted a search of Coolan's home Nov. 20, and found in a safe her residence an expired driver’s license and a glass bulb pipe with a burned white residue inside of it.

If convicted, Coolan faces a possible sentence of five years in prison, KARE-TV reported.
