Meth-Head Mom Allegedly Shot Up 5-Year-Old Kid With Meth

An admitted meth user's 5-year-old daughter tested positive for meth, after the girl complained about her mother sticking her with needles, police say.

Jacqueline Trousdale, a 30-year-old Phoenix resident, was the subject of "several" ongoing Child Protective Services investigations, according to court documents obtained by New Times, which isn't exactly hard to believe.

Trousdale had been living at a hotel in Tolleson in October, after a relative reported possible molestation of Trousdale's kids, ages 5 and 6.

The kids had told family members, including their father, that their mother was injecting them with a drug, and then "allowing men to molest them for a profit while inside of the hotel room," the documents state.

While the allegations of molestation didn't pan out, Tolleson cops were able to substantiate the drug claims.

The kids' father went to the hotel to confront Trousdale, but she was busy smoking meth in the bathroom with the kids. He took the 5-year-old girl with her, but the 6-year-old refused to leave her mom.

According to the documents, the 5-year-old told the reporting relative that he mother "stuck her in the foot with a needle, and she felt drowsy afterwards."

CPS had been looking for these kids in October -- as Trousdale moved around to different hotels -- but an investigator was finally able to interview the little girl.

Among other things, the girl said her mom gave her a shot in her arm, which police say "resembled a mosquito bite, but also resembled a puncture mark."

The girl did not say she was molested, and a forensic exam concluded the same thing. However, the nurse examining her did find that she had a fever, was underweight, and had an untreated heart condition, according to the documents.

Police interviewed Trousdale in late October -- after CPS took custody of her kid -- and denied using marijuana around her daughters. She did, however, admit that she smokes meth around the kids, but claimed that they're usually sleeping when she's hitting the meth.

The Department of Public Safety crime lab just shipped back the results of the 5-year-old girl's urine late last week, finding that she tested positive for both amphetamine and methamphetamine.

Trousdale was tracked down and arrested on Sunday, and was "yelling, cussing, and eventually refused to answer any questions," court documents state.

"Some of her responses were unintelligible, and she appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance," a probable-cause statement says, as we have some good guesses as to what that substance might be.

Trousdale was booked on one charge of felony child-abuse, as well as a misdemeanor charge of endangering the health of a minor.

I was talking on the phone with someone who is currently awaiting trial at the 4th Avenue Jail.  This story is being discussed throughout the jail system.  Even the "biggest, baddest" inmates feel this woman needs to feel the full extent of the law.  I think that about says it all.

WTH are people thinking these days. I was going to say I was sick after this read but that doesn''t come close. This is the kind of busts I like to see. Get people like this off the street. A big high five to the detectives on this one. Makes me have faith in the system again, almost. Good job here.
