On Thursday, November 1, 2018, officers from the Galion Police Department executed a search warrant at 64 Cedargate Court as part of the continuing investigation of a 5 year old boy testing positive for methamphetamine on Sunday, October 28.
Officer Tim Johnson and his partner, K-9 Basco, assisted our detectives during the search of the apartment. During the search, drug paraphernalia, marijuana and suspected methamphetamine were seized as evidence. A urine sample was also collected from the boy’s father, Cambray Carwell which had a preliminary positive test for the presence of methamphetamine.
Cambray Carwell, age 24, was placed under arrest and transported to the Crawford County Jail on charges of Tampering with Evidence and Possession of Drugs – methamphetamine. The investigation will be presented to the Crawford County Prosecutor for review and filing of formal charges.
“Our detectives have worked extremely hard on this investigation. While we cannot definitively say how the little boy ingested methamphetamine, we are extremely confident that he did not ingest any candy from Trick or Treat that was tainted. The boy is home, has been attending school and has not shown any lingering effects from the drug.”
We have received word from the crime lab regarding the toy teeth that were sent for testing. They advised that there were no signs of a controlled substance found on the teeth.
All charges relating to last night’s arrest are specific to evidence obtained during the search warrant. At this time, there are no criminal charges pertaining to the child ingesting methamphetamine.
